Riding a cow through the snow

Photo taken in Minnesota's Northwest Angle in 1950.

Since we'll never have another occasion to mention this topic, the Northwest Angle is that little pointy part of Minnesota that sticks into Canada and is the northernmost part of the contiguous lower 48 states. You can only reach it by going through Canada, because it is separated from the rest of Minnesota by Lake of the Woods. The population at the last census was 152 in a 600 square mile area (including the water).

I have no idea why someone was riding a cow there in 1950.


  1. Silly Stan... They're riding the cow through the snow because that's a much more sensible option than walking and leading the cow through the snow. Obviously.

  2. Also, he's a damn Minnesotan. Don't question our ways
