Greetings from Minnesota…wish you were here!
Photo of the Minnehaha Creek a few blocks away from my home which is part of my running path to the lake. This river also drains into the Mississippi River.
I love this creek. It is so beautiful and changes so much throughout the seasons. The kids love to play around in it and throw sticks inside. Often there are a pair of ducks and if you go further down you can even find crawfish. Sometimes you can see a bald eagle or an owl among the tall trees which line the creek. I love this photo taken a couple of weeks ago at the onset of Spring. The creek is coming back to life and its greenery takes your breath away.
Just beautiful. Lucky you and lucky kids!
Yes we are lucky! Minnesota is such a beautiful place and the city itself is spectacular. We have boundless lakes, creeks, biking trails and parks (one every 6 blocks). It is a nice place to live despite the cold winters!
My Dad has a creek running along his backyard and as a child I would spend many afternoons playing down there. Once I found a floating mannequin and I thought it was a real body,scared the living daylights out of me. I couldn’t go back down there for weeks or alone!
Now that is a bit creepy! We lived in a house before this one that had two mannequins sitting out front dressed in odd clothes. They always creeped me out. I wonder who on earth would put on in a creek!!!!
