Take A Journey To The Past On A Trek Across Hegman Lake, A Minnesota Hike That Can Only Be Done In Wintertime

Minnesotans are a hardy bunch, and we rarely let bad weather stop us from having a good time. That’s why there are few things in the Land of 10,000 Lakes that you can’t do all year long. There are a few, though, and today we want to introduce you to a hike that you can only do in winter. Why? Because it’s across a frozen lake. Finish the hike, and you’ll come face-to-face with 500-year-old pictographs on a northern Minnesota cliff. Here’s all you need to know about taking a winter journey to the Hegman Lake Pictographs.
