St Albins Bay Bridge
Photo opportunities are bountiful around the lake Minnetonka area, I have followed the seasons, the colors and the people around the lake and the photos always seem to tell a story. watching the local papers and internet search, photo contest and new gallery openings can often be found if that happens to be your venue.

Berries are in perfect harvest stage fore picking along the Gunflint trail just out side of Grand Marais. My wife Gracie and I were hiking to the Magnetic rock about 30 miles North West of Grand Marais when we noticed a bountiful view of Raspberries and then noticed people off of to the side of the path picking Blueberries by the bucketful, this trail walks through the BWCA burnout area and is just now coming back to life with new ground growth with pine, birch and aspen trees and lots of berries of every kind.
Most of the berries along the trail are ripe and ready for picking, we still found many berries at various young and mature stages.
Bring containers, we were limited to our camel back water bottle we use for hiking.
Don’t delay, berries wait for no one. When they are ready they are either picked or drop to the ground.

Opportunity knocked so I took the photo, I was taking some photos at dusk under the 35W Mississippi river bridge crossing and these three bikers pulled up one level above me under the bridge lights, so I asked if I could take their picture with the lights as a background, they were very willing.

Best viewed large click on picture.
Mickey's is a great place, I think I've posted some of Mickey's before, it is a favorite, and I haven't been able to make it to the St. Paul winter carnival this year, so St Paul is on my mind. Wishing I could make, it is a wonderful winter event in Minnesota.

Minnesota landscape arboretum is one of my favorite places to walk and take photos, my wife purchased a family and friends pass this year and I do believe that it is money spent wisely for entertainment value and for a good cause.
Spring Summer and Fall have been great and from the last walk I took with my daughter on October 26 I can see that autumn is not an end it is a beginning and now I can hardly wait to go back for the next season, the season of November when things out side are quiet and the wind and cold can seem bitter or sweet autumn colors are fading into winter grays and the rustling of squirrels can sound earth shattering in those woods and meadows. Now those hidden deer are easier to see and the time spent outdoors is so much more appreciated.
