Take a break from the news by taking a virtual hike

Sick of politics?

Why not take a break by taking a hike? Well, a virtual hike.

It's a bit cloudy but join MPR News as we walk the Winchell Trail at the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. It's on the west bank of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis.

Aaahhh. That feels better.

Follow the MPR News Facebook page for a daily moment of zen — we're calling it The Zencast — every weekday morning through Friday.
