Any Minnesotans interested in getting together to shoot some film at one of our lovely State parks or cities? Quarry Park in St. Cloud is always an interesting place to visit. It is an old Quartz mine and a series of spring fed pits that even contain some fish.

Or Duluth, Two Harbors and the North Shore?

I'm going to be in Minnesota next month. I'll keep an eye on this thread and see what progresses.

St Cloud sounds interesting. The North Shore is such a hike, more like a weekend project. It would be an interesting idea to do something like that some time, however. A full weekend up on Lake Superior.

Good idea, Andrew.

I would be interested in doing something. I've never photographed the St cloud area, could be fun.

Just got back yesterday from 10 days in St.James, S.W. area. I'll be back their in July and if anything comes up after the 8th I could probably join in. St,. Cloud sounds good also. Don't know if there will be much of anything left after the fire in the North gets under control.

I have a pop-up camper so a weekend trip up to Superior/Duluth area would be cool with me.

Let me work on something for the St. Cloud area. What about dates? I am thinking 2nd Weekend in June

Also a thought. Should we extend and invitation to our neighbors in Wisconsin? I know they have a fairly active group of APUG'ers

Okay an update. I have spoken to a good friend of mine. Sunday June 10th is a go for the photo visit to St. Cloud's Quarry Park where he can show us the way in. I know that other folks have mentioned dates in July, maybe other trips can be arranged, and other venues, and people can chime in and lead those?

Ahhh, too bad, I won't be in Minnesota until the 9th, and we'll be in Perham, which is an hour east of Moorehead/Fargo for the first few days.

You folks are more than welcome to come up north while I'm there :)

Dana, I cannot do that that day, but no doubt more opportunities will be available in the future. How often do you get to MN?

Andrew, the day-trip on June 10th sounds very interesting. I think I'll be there, rain or shine. We should think about commuting the way the gas prices are these days... Where are you located? I'm in St.Paul, straight across the river from Fort Snelling, a couple of blocks off the river.

Thomas, I could swing by and pick you up as I am in Woodbury. Then we could car pool up to St. Cloud

I think the idea of inviting our neighbors in Wisconsin is a good idea. Not too bad of a drive.

Invitation to WI APUGers is sent. We'll see who is interested. So far I've only got a firm committment from Thomas, who else is wanting to go on June 10th?

Checking my schedule now. Looks like a possibility.

So, I still only have committment from Thomas, and a friend of mine for Sunday June 10th at St. Cloud. If any other Minnesotans and Wisconsin APUG'ers want to join, please let me know.

I also want to gauge feedback and interest on an APUG trip up to the north shore. We could go for a weekend trip along the scenic highway 61. If you like to camp, this could be a good trip for that, and plenty to photograph. I am flexible on dates and times, but we need to start planning it now if we are to reserve campgrounds, B&B's or whatever

I've been away for awhile and am glad I checked the regional forum. I would love to come along. I went to school @SCSU and have family 20min north of St.Cloud. Count me in. Someone want to post a meeting time/place and I'll show.

Andrew, I believe (pending work stuff) that I can make it. Im in the Cities so it'd just be a short drive for me.
