Minnehaha Falls Park, Minneapolis, Minnesota



i have heard of Minnehaha Falls Park, for years, and after laughing at the name, i finally got the chance to see it in person. look at that water fall ... so powerful. it was so loud.

there is a gorgeous park there surrounding the waterfall. you might even miss the waterfall, if you are not from the area. we did ask a lady are we headed in the right direction? yep, a bit farther.

lots of lovely flowers & views. we were on a time schedule we had paid for parking so only like a few moments before our time ran out. so it was a quick run to the fall & back to the vehicle. when you are on a schedule you do what you gotta do. Beth ( :

looks beautiful!
I've heard of the name but didn't know there was a real place to go with it. Just thought it was some sort of joke.

That is an impressive amount of water in the water fall. Excellent shot of it.

Okay, putting it on my bucket list for the next trip North. We have friends who summer in Minnesota, and other friends who live there.

Dear Friend, Just stopping by to say HI. Hope you are having a good December so far. This will be a very different kind of Christmas for George and me this year. But—all in all, we are both enjoying being together and sharing our love with each other. What more can we ask for!!!!

Other than a post today, I won't be blogging much until I start feeling better and get this knee/leg taken care of... I will try to at least read your posts (even if I don't comment)... I will however be posting off and on on Facebook (since it's so simple) if you want to check there when possible.

Did you know that there is a Minnehaha Falls in GEORGIA??? I've seen it!!!! Crazy, huh?
Hugs,
Betsy

What a beautiful waterfall! I've heard of it before, and I might have been there- we passed through Minnesota on one of our trips out west when I was a child.

That is a beautiful waterfall and I'm glad you got to see it!
To answer your question about Stormy, yep, she was rescued one stormy night by my hubby and he brought her home. So we just decided to call her Stormy! :)
So here you are, in my neck of the woods again! Minnehaha Falls is pretty, isn't it. Minnesota and Wisconsin are both beautiful, especially in the summertime with our combined number of lakes being somewhat over 25,000. I guess you could say we're the Lake District of the United States (Well, except for the Great Lakes, of course). Have a lovely Tuesday.

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…

North Bend Park, Virginia

North Bend Park, John H. Kerr Dam, Virginia. It was kind of rainy, kind of sunny. partly cloudy. It was a bit iffy, but we still made time to kayaking. Had a ball. The clouds & sun were playing on the waters, what great times to take photos. ( O : =  
This area has so many different campground on different parts of the dam/lake. I believe this is the 3 different one we have visited so far, I'm sure the hubby has the others in the plans for later on... never know what he has up his selves. giggles. ( ; 

Enjoy enjoy the vlog from that day. Thank you for stopping by, do take care. Beth ( :
