The dirt road in Faribault County, MN that lead me to Rosehill Cemetery.

Cemeteries. Every city has one. They are mysterious, historic, haunting and, to me, fascinating.  I developed a fondness for cemeteries as a boy.

Now whenever I’m out of town, I always make it a point to visit a cemetery.  To me, they are better than any mountain range, skyline or other popular tourist attraction.  They are hidden treasures containing a wealth of information about communities and the people who lived there.

WYR Clothing sells fashions representing all 50 states.

Last weekend, I ran in the Mankato, MN Marathon. While there, I visited one of my favorite sporting goods retailers, Scheels All Sports. And I’m glad I did!

I discovered a line of t-shirts by WYR Clothing which stands for Wear Your Roots.

The concept behind the brand is simple. It’s for those who love their state, whether it was the place they were born or raised, or where they live now. In my case, I’m hoping to get transferred up North in my current job, so I purchased a WYR Minnesota t-shirt.
