For the Techie

Love gadgets? So do we! There are more and more high tech ways to interact with Minnesota state parks and trails. From geocaching to virtual tours, wifi in the parks, and podcasts, we're working on ways to keep up with technology. Some people prefer to completely unplug when they head outside, and that's great, but for those who'd rather have options...we aim to please!
