Jen Stone: “I’m from Green River, Wyoming. It’s about 1,000 miles from here. We decided to come to Park Rapids this year. I have family that lives up here. We don’t make the trip very often, but we love passing through you guys’ area. We plan to go back down through South Dakota, do a couple days there, and (that’s) probably it for the summer. Honestly, it’s too much of a haul. But it’s definitely one of the cutest towns I’ve ever seen.”
