Sir Robin's Minstrels heard of a far far away land where the forests are impenetrable, the mosquitoes are the size of small coconuts, and the drive is maddeningly long to get to. They thought it would be a lovely retreat for their weary feet. So off they went, north from the Twin Cities on I-35 for what seemed like days, and days, and a couple minutes. They stopped halfway there for a tasty repast of spam, spam, bacon and spam.
Back on the road they journeyed up a vast expanse of concrete and asphalt then reached a city that sounded like that silly little game called croquet they used to play when they were wee lads. At this juncture they headed down a highway whose double digits are both the same and fall somewhere between 1 and 99. They exited and traveled in a somewhat westerly, north-westerly direction.
A ways down the road they came across a highway named after the thing you do in the bushes that's not number 1. Following this road to the west led them to rapids that were quite immense, you could even say they were Grand, even though they never really saw them once they arrived. Upon arrival in these rapids of immensity it was time to use the bushes again. Not wanting to use the same type of bush this time because the last bush gave them a rash, Sir Robin's Minstrels went left at the tri colored lights to avoid the previous type of bush.
When the Minstrels saw a road named after a handgun and an old band fronted by Donnie Van Zant they knew they were getting close to being able to rest. Not wanting to stop now, they headed north again into the vast and unknown expanse of the ________ Nat'l ______.
They traveled slowly and carefully through this beautiful and magical realm. They saw creatures they never saw back home. There was one creature that looked like a large black ball of fur with a tan snout, razor sharp claws, and fangs that promised death to all those who would dare trifle with it. There was a creature of great stature whose headpiece stretched out for 5 feet on either side of his head. There was all manner of bird and insect, especially the mosquitoes of unusual size. There were plain old deer, no excitement there. The deer did have a rather queer game of jumping out from behind trees to frighten them though, so they slowed down to enjoy the scenery.
Finally! they shouted in unison, we have arrived! They did not know the name of the place they were but it did have a marking of some sort, a numerical code that said E__ O_ T__ W_________ site 27.7 so they took a left and parked by the large sandbox.
Climbing out of their trusty metal steeds
they stretched their legs after a beautiful but grueling trek. Wanting to
know where they were, they spotted a kiosk that gave them information about
the place they were and how it came to be.
