An early morning stroll on the trails of a nearby park yielded the image.


The setting sun set the trees ablaze, under a looming rainstorm.
Just outside of town, on the way home from work.

Looks like some of the country around St. Peter. My son goes to school there.

Good Eye Goose!

The first photo was taken about three miles from St. Peter at a place called Seven Mile Creek Park.

Just spent a couple days in Henderson MN.

I took a couple NRA classes at the Henderson Gun Club. A very small range on top of a hill, beautiful setting,I commented that if it was not a small gun range it could be a old cemetery.

I was told that during the summer they have a car show on Main St. every Tuesday, I would love to visit that.
GREAT AREA!

My wife's whole family is from northern Minnesota. For the majority of our marriage we spent 2 weeks in the late summer/early fall visiting her family up there. I would always drive up and over the UP to get up there

Beautiful country

Unfortunately we buried her last relative up there, her grandfather, in Arlington last spring

It's strange an area and place that had become so much a constant for years I don't know that I will ever go back to now

As I get older it gets shocking how things are there, and seem like they will always be there, and then are just suddenly gone

Psst, Psst! There's about a 9lb Walleye just to the right of that single tree brushpile! Throw a Shad Rap that way and please report back!

(Beautiful pics. Thanks for posting.)

It used to be a good Walleye lake when I first moved there about 20 years ago.

..but... see those black dots in the trees by the left hand edge of the image? In the last few years we have had large flocks of Cormorants spend their summers on the lake.
They are protected birds now and cannot be disturbed. You don't see many people fishing the lake anymore as it is just not worth it.

Beautiful shots. The one, and just about the only thing, I miss about MD is the change of seasons. MD being in the Eastern hardwood forest, it's incredible to see the colors. Now, in AZ, we just see mesquite and palo verde trees dropping their leaves.
