Walk Through 282 Acres Of Rock Formations At Minnesota’s Pipestone National Monument

Minnesota is not known for its rock formations. Our state gets much more attention for its more than 10,000 lakes than for its mountains. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have more than a few rocky spots that are worth visiting. In the north, there are high cliffs that rise over Lake Superior. In the southeast, visitors find beautiful bluffs along the Mississippi River. And in the southwestern corner of Minnesota, there are some little-known rock formations that may surprise you. Amazing pink quartzite cliffs, unlike anything else you’ll find in Minnesota, rise above the vast prairie at Pipestone National Monument. Read on below to learn about what you’ll find at this 282-acre monument:
