Picture of the Day: Jay Cooke State Park Visitor Center

This building, today’s picture, makes a subtle political point.

This is the brand new Jay Cooke State Park Visitor Center. The old building was in dire need of maintenance, and so a new building was built for one of the underappreciated gems of the Minnesota State Park system.

And, if the axe-swinging Republicans now in charge had had their way a couple of years ago, this beautiful building would never have been built.
