Minnesota Has A Grand Canyon And It’s Too Beautiful For Words
Most people know that Minnesota’s beauty comes from its lakes and forests. No mountains to see here, let alone sprawling canyons – or so you thought. But Minnesota actually has its own Grand Canyon. You can’t ride a mule down it, but you can still enjoy the view. The Hull-Rust-Mahoning Mine is a sprawling pit that has become known as the Grand Canyon of the North. It may be man-made, but the incredible views will blow you away.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
