The January snowstorm came just in time to lend ambiance to a nighttime hike near Mankato this weekend.
Minneopa State Park will host a candlelight event on Saturday, January 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Hikers will be able to enjoy a full moon over the fresh snow as they navigate a forested trail lit by luminaries in white bags.
The Minnesota Department of Natual Resources says the candlelight hike is a way for park visitors to experience Minneopa at nighttime in winter.
The luminary trail will start at the group campground.
