things to do in owatonna: The Tennis Nets Are Back Up Around Town - Owatonna Minnesota! - 03/27/10 10:19 AM
We've beeen playing a lot of indoor tennis over the winter, but now the nets are back up around town.  Even though we might have to put up with a little bit of debris on the courts, and a few cracks here and there, we much prefer to be outside playing than inside the Owatonna Tennis Center.  Before we head outside, though, I think I'd better take advantage of a lesson or two from the in-house tennis pro.  We've made a lot of progress since we started playing about a year ago.  It's been a great way to spend time with … (1 comments)

things to do in owatonna: Time to Put the Skis Away - What an Adventure! - 03/05/10 03:37 AM
Well, the days and nights of cross country skiing seem to be melting away.  Not that I'm complaining about the sunny, above 30 degree days that we've been experiencing all week.  It's just that I was hoping for a few more opportunities to strap the skis on.  We've seen some beautiful spots around Minnesota this winter.  We toured Forestville State Park near Preston, Nerstrand Big Woods State Park between Northfield, Kenyon and Faribault, Banning State Park near Sandstone, Owatonna's own Rice Lake State Park, and of course, Kaplan's Woods.  We skied at 5 below zero and when it was in … (3 comments)

things to do in owatonna: Kaplans Woods Winter Wonderland - 02/15/10 03:44 AM

Boy, did I ever pick THE best year ever to buy cross country skis.  It has been an amazing winter for skiing.  We've spent hours on the wonderfully groomed trails throughout Kaplan's Woods and certainly know most nooks and crannies by heart - even in the dark.  Speaking of night skiing, we are outfitted with our headlamps and can manuever our way through every twist and turn along the trail while under the stars.
A week ago we skiied through Rice Lake State Park (about 7 miles from Owatonna) during the Candlelight ski event.  What a great evening!  The friends of Rice … (3 comments)
