homes along the shore of Black Lake
Lake Minnetonka is one of Minnesota's many large lakes with lots of activities to enjoy. With its 125 miles of shoreline carved by its bays, coves, islands and peninsulas, hundreds of picturesque scenes are to be had. This one of Maxwell Bay and the next few are some I took on a sunny late summer/early fall day in September.

Lake Nokomis, Minneapolis
Another of Minnesota's lakes is this one, Lake Nokomis, geographically located between Minneapolis and St. Paul. It's popular not only because of the lake itself, but also because of its two beaches with imported sand and the huge grassy park by the same name which surrounds it.
She may have given up this view from her bedroom window when she moved closer to the cities, but my sister doesn't regret it. St. Paul has trees, too!!

Minnehaha Falls in winter
The Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis may be on the small side, as waterfalls go, but its 53-foot drop is impressive just the same. The fall is part of the Minnehaha Creek, a tributary of the Mississippi.
