Fall in Minneapolis (Part 2)

This fall is turning out to be just spectacular, so my husband and I take a day off from our yard work and house projects and play tourist in our own city.

First stop, the gardens at Lake Harriet.

Next, Minnehaha Falls.

Fall in Minneapolis

The trees are getting lovely here in the Twin Cities. We have a visitor from California here this week, so I have been dragging him around to show off my home. Today we venture into Minneapolis.

We start at the Stone Arch bridge, heading toward downtown.

The river is high this fall and it tumbles and roars at St. Anthony Falls.

We follow the river behind downtown and cross over Nicollet Island on the Hennepin Avenue bridge.

After lunch, we circle the chain of lakes. The sailboats are gone now and Lake Harriet lies quiet under the blue sky.
