Start Off 2021 With A Lantern-Lit First Day Hike In North Dakota’s Fort Stevenson State Park

You can start off 2021 with exactly that as you follow a beautiful lantern trail in North Dakota on New Years Day. Clear your mind, take a deep breath of fresh air, and embark on a new journey for a new year during this event.
