Appreciating Nature

Yesterday we took a walk along the Minnesota River, and it made me pause and think about how much I appreciate my city's preservation of natural areas. We have so many parks and trails and places to be outside (including the dog park, my most frequented park in town!) and it makes for a good life.
I love the trail rules! I like the author's perspective and attitude:
I am not much of a photographer but tried to capture a flower shot ...
And interesting tree roots ...

Throwing rocks into the water ...

Pesky, but still beautiful ~
This last picture is actually from a different park, not the river, but we visited this park the same day as the river so I wanted to include it anyway.

So who took the last shot? Do you have papparazzi following you now? hee hee

Beautiful...Minnesota really is underrated by the rest of the country. Which is good because it keeps everyone away.
