Finally a beautiful autumn day fell on one of my days off, so I decided to jump on the opportunity to cross an item off of my Minnesota Bucket List. My dog and I were off to Minnehaha Falls. Unfortunately, we've been low on rainfall here in Minnesota, so the falls were pretty sparse. Regardless, its still a great place to walk around.
When Minnesota was being settled, the falls were too small to have economic value compared to St. Anthony Falls in the Mississippi, so they largely remained a tourist destination. Minnehaha park is currently a Minneapolis city park. The upper level is maintained, like any other city park, whereas the lower level (where all of these pictures are from) is left in a more natural state. (Source)
For good measure, here's a picture of my mom's pup, Bailey. If only I could take her to New Jersey too.
