Flying the Root River

We flew down to Rushford, Minnesota, on Monday and it was impossible to mistake what the summer rain has done this year compared to previous years. It’s green. Really green. Green in a way that makes you feel selfish for keeping the beauty the state can offer to ourselves.

That’s especially impressive in southeast Minnesota and documented within the last week or so by Steve Russell, the Apple Valley native whose videos from a powered parachute are always breathtaking.

    Love the videos, Bob!

    I can really appreciate what you’re saying about the green. We just came back from a driving trip around the Pacific NW and the brown was pretty depressing in a lot of places.
