Located just west of North Mankato, MN in a small Nicollet County park off of Nicollet County Road 41 sits the magnificent and elusive Minnemishiona Falls. Plunging a whopping 41 feet, the stream is found to be dry during many of our warmer and/or drier months but when the water is running it is quite the site to see.

Lake Superior slowly thaws

While the days of snow blanketing the landscape are hopefully behind us for a few months, this scene from the shores of Lake Superior seems to be a study in the contrast of seasons. Open and frigid water in stark contrast to thick blanket of snow on the rugged and rocky banks of the greatest of the Great Lakes.

Moody skies frame this solitary country church as rays of sunlight break through the ragged cloud cover on this rural Minnesota scene.

An abandoned house on what I can only assume was once a thriving farmstead slowly crumbles but at least the yard surrounding this humble home is still maintained by the property owner.

From the ground at this angle, the wind turbines which dot the farmland of Minnesota and surrounding states look to be an almost manageable height. I love how perspective plays tricks on your mind like this.
