Blue Mounds Gathering

Is coming up on June 5th-June 7th. Sponsored by Minnesota Climbers Association. More info at their Facebook page or here. Info on climbs at B.M. is here. I believe they will have many climbs set up for top ropes. We are planning to camp there just one night – Saturday. (B.M. might not be the best abbreviation. Let’s just use Blue, OK?)

The Blue was home to Frederick Manfred who wrote many books about the Native Americans who lived on the nearby plains. Probably his best known book is “Lord Grizzly” the true story of Hugh Glass who was attacked by a grizzly and crawled  alone about 200 miles to safety through hostile Indian territory. (Probably felt like you did after a party on a Saturday night.)
