With hard frosts wilting the flowers and gardens, the bright orange of pump-
kins and maple leaves is the eye-catching color in the landscape now. Bright sun
shining on a perfectly shaped maple grabs your attention but spotting giant
pumpkins in a front lawn makes you do a double-take.
Check out these pumpkins across from the Gordon Pleasant Hill Cemetery at
the intersection of 14th Avenue and Hwy 27, east of Lake Osakis.
Doug Wallace grew the pumpkins in his Gordon Township garden. Besides
starting with giant pumpkin seeds, Doug says it takes lots of water and careful
pruning of the vines to get the really big ones.
Doug’s largest pumpkin, the fifth place winner at the Delano
Weigh-off, weighs 1,019 pounds.

Minnesota state parks offer fall try before you buy


promotion
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has a deal for visitors who can’t decide
whether to purchase the one-day permit or the year-round permit when they arrive to hike, bike, and
picnic amid the fall colors at Minnesota state parks and recreation areas.
If visitors choose the one-day permit ($5), they can turn it in before they leave for a $5 credit toward
the purchase of a year-round permit. The cost of the year-round permit would therefore be reduced
from $25 to $20.
"The year-round permit is the best deal, because it gives you and everyone in your vehicle unlim-
ited visits to all 72 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas," said Pat Arndt, manager of planning
and public affairs for the DNR's Division of Parks and Trails. "Often families have so much fun on
their first visit, they make plans to return. Allowing them to apply the price of their one-day permit
to the purchase of a year-round permit before they leave the park makes perfect sense, because it lets
newcomers 'try' before they 'buy.'"
To call attention to this special promotion, banners will be posted outside park offices through Nov.
Tom Brown was the lucky winner of the grill.
1 with a headline of "Good times. Great deal." Park staff will also wear buttons that say, "Why limit
yourself? Ask me for more info."
After Nov. 1, visitors can continue to redeem one-day permits for a $5 credit toward year-round per-
mits purchased the same day.
There is a Minnesota state park or recreation area within 30 miles of most Minnesotans. State
parks are open seven days a week year-round, including holidays. Information about what there is to
see and do at parks and recreation areas can be found at www.mnstateparks.info.
