Park rangers erect a barricade to an entrance to Temperance River State Park near Lutsen, Minnesota, June 30, 2011. Minnesota's Democratic Governor Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders were set to continue budget talks on Thursday hours before a possible state government shutdown at midnight. If they cannot agree on a budget by midnight on Thursday, or on an extension, all but the most critical Minnesota services will shut down for the first time since 2005, including state parks for the July 4 weekend.
