Skiing Minnehaha Park

Have y’all ever been skiing along Minnehaha Creek below the falls?  Turns out, it’s a really great place to ski. No matter how many times it happens, I’m always amazed at how the Minneapolis Parks can make me feel like I’m in the middle of the wilderness while I’m still right in the middle of the city.  I love this City!

Also, I take lousy photos at night….


Cabin in Nashwauk

Last weekend we were invited by some friends to spend the weekend with them at their cabin. We had a really good time.  The cabin was sort of up near Nashwauk, MN.  It’s surrounded by trees on the edge of a lake.  Such a beautiful setting!
The weekend was full of things like:

cross country skiing

boot hockey
(sorry no pic – have a headshot instead)

traditional finnish sauna

There is nothing quite like dumping a bucket of freezing cold water over your head while standing in the middle of a 200 degree F sauna.  Someday I want a sauna… or a steam room… or a hot tub… any of those will do.
