Fort Snelling

This past weekend, my husband and I went to a regional conference in Minneapolis.

The conference was great, and we learned a lot. We met with old friends, and made some new ones. And of course, we ate entirely too much good food!

When the conference was over, we were treated to a private tour of Fort Snelling.

It was a short tour, but amazing because there were only four of us with our guide.

I put all my photos in a small video so that I could share them with you.

The photos, of course, don’t do it justice. You need to go yourself!

Imagine yourself living in the Commandants house (see how short that bed is!), or in the barracks, or looking through the portals and seeing your enemy on his way!

While we were there, I kept imaging the sound of the bugle calls flowing over the parade grounds.

So I added a couple of links, in case you were inspired to hear them as well.

Thanks for stopping in!
