Fall cruise 2016
The Corvettes of Minnesota Fall Cruise for 2015 started at the McDonald's on the Oakdale/Lake Elmo border, just off I-694.. About 15 cars, mostly Corvettes, followed a route around the Tri-Lakes area of Lake Elmo (Lake DeMontreville, Lake Jane, and Olsen Lake) to Countryside Farm in Lake Elmo. We spent some time shopping for the perfect pumpkin, feeding goats at the farm, looking at the Haunted House and Wild West Town, and taking lots of pictures. As on all our cruises, the course instructions were designed with keeping everyone on the proper course.
Next on the trip was a car tour through historic Stillwater, "Birthplace of Minnesota", past many of the Lumber Baron homes from the 1850's to 1890's, and other historic buildings. A short drive into Wisconsin, and a fun drive on a twisting township road, led us to the 100-year old Bass Lake Cheese Factory. After a refreshing stop, we traveled north through Somerset and some small villages on more winding roads to Osceola, and back across the St. Croix River to Minnesota. A short drive south took us through the tiny settlement of Copas, and then to Scandia, an early Swedish settlement in the area. What could be better than burgers at Meister's (a German bar/restaurant in a Swedish community)? After lunch at Meister's, Cruise participants were free to return home by their own routes, with several stopping at Aamodt's Apple Orchard near Stillwater for pie and ice cream, or to purchase various varieties of apples in their huge apple barn.
