During the winter months, Pipestone National Monument transforms into a snow-covered natural wonder in Minnesota – proving that winter in the North Star State is truly magical. So, why not bundle up and pay a visit?
When you go, be sure to wear warm footwear. Traction devices are always a good idea for winter hiking, and snowshoers will find plenty to explore. Make sure you have plenty of memory on your phone or camera, because you’ll want to capture a lot of images.
Despite the cold, there’s just something about winter that nudges Pipestone National Monument’s natural beauty even farther up the superlative scale. We are definitely lucky to live in Minnesota where we can enjoy so many spectacular wintertime hikes like the loop at Pipestone. Have you seen the monument in a mantle of white?
