Adventure! It inspires as much as it excites. My travels the last few years have brought me to Maui, Texas, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Alcatraz, Yosemite National Park, Australia, the National Parks of Utah, and John Muir Woods. Since Minnesota is where I call home, I know I don't have to travel far if I don't want to. The Twin Cities are full of cemeteries, parks, and creepy little antique shops for me to explore, as well as the Minnesota State Fair, the North Shore, and the St. Croix River Valley.
