Fort Ridgely Hike

My humans and I hit the road for a “historic” hike at Fort Ridgely. We have camped at the state park connected to this historic site but I have never visited. So we jumped into our car and headed out for some fresh air and bonding time.
Here is some history about Fort Ridgely:
“Built in 1853 as a police station to keep peace as settlers poured into the former Dakota lands, it withstood several attacks in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 and became a training ground for Civil War recruits.”
To learn more visit the Minnesota Historical Society.

As we walked along the path my humans read the signs to me and explained what the rocks in the ground were.

My humans explained to me that the rock structures, we were seeing in the ground, were the foundation to the buildings at the fort. These structures were amazing to see and imaging what they were like when the buildings were on them.

Now time to pose in front of the monument.

I had so much fun visiting For Ridgely. Can’t wait to see where my adventures bring me next.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, see you on Monday!
