My Minn-Max Scooter group kicked off in a SW suburb
of the Twin Cities and rode SW down the Minnesota River
Valley to Mankato. We passed through Le Sueur and the
Valley of the "Jolly Green Giant" that produces canned peas,
cut green beans, and corn.

Restaurants and Bars are open in Minnesota. We stopped
for lunch in Mankato at Blue Bricks Bar and Eatery. It
was sunny and hot on the road - great adventure.
