Hyland Lake Preserve Ski Jump, Bloomington, MN

I know some of you heard I could ski jump only minutes from my house (and if I lost all leave of my senses one day), so I thought I would highlight this area of the preserve with a quick hike of it in summer.

I was impressed with how high it all rises above the surrounding area, with the massive steel structures required, with the lack of any real "jump" (it just shoots straight out over the hill), and with the hiking trails that wind around the mountain/hill. It makes for a very nice afternoon get-away, but only minutes from home.
