Autumn is a wonderful time to explore rural Minnesota. There are many beautiful areas to travel throughout the state that show some of the amazing variations in landscape.
This week I took a meandering route from St. Cloud and saw some amazing examples of cultural, historic and natural qualities. There were farmers working in the field and horses grazing in the pastures and scenic little churches
like the one above.
St. Wendelin Parish dates from 1859 and is named in honor of St. Wendelin, a Scotsman and shepherd that later founded the Benedictine Abbey of Tholey. He died around the year 617 A.D., and is the patron saint of "country folk and herdsmen," according to the History of St. Wendelin's Parish (1934).
