Did You Know? – #2 of Series

an #MNbump Series – #2 – Glacial Rocks in Big Stone County DID YOU KNOW? This is a Second in a series about things in the #MNbump that we are calling #MNbumpExplore. You may or may not know about these places but we encourage you to go check them out, take a selfie or group photo with them and share the photos on your page, tagging or #MNbump on Facebook!
