Tourist Destination: Dorset ... Population 24

Every year when we come to Park Rapids we have to get over to the little town of Dorset for one meal.  The town has a population of 24 and is just a wide spot on County Road 226 but that wide spot has so many good places.  The town may only have 24 people but it's got about 200 employees in the stores and restaurants.
I wonder how the places can stay open but they must get enough tourists because they've all been there for decades.

Sister Wolf Bookstore was celebrating its 20th anniversary so the store not only had books but cake.  Win!  Win!

We always eat at the Dorset Café where I always choose the broasted chicken and Bob always chooses something else.  I've got to love a café where the salad bar has a crock full of blue cheese.
We're in forest country, the part of Minnesota which is called North Woods.  We were told that we still aren't far enough north to find moose even though every tourist shop has lots of moose items.
The perfect end to a camping day ... a fire and hotdogs.
