April Showers? In June? {Minnehaha Falls}

Minnesota had some amazing rainfall this year, especially in June. Bridges were closed due to high waters. A friend of mine paddled her kayak to work one morning. There's a golf course in Minneapolis that is still closed. Yikes!

Really, I'm writing this post with the sole purpose of sharing some pictures of one of Minneapolis' local waterfalls: Minnehaha Falls.

It's located in a beautiful park, that also boasts a wading pool, off-leash dog park, and outdoor concerts. Not to mention Sea Salt, a delicious seafood eatery that never, (I'll repeat) never has an empty table.

I know, I know. I'm not imparting any new ideas, awesome lists, or a DIY project. But this park has my heart. I've been there 3 times already this summer. And I would go three more.

(I didn't know there was a wading pool - just added that to my summer bucket list!)

Look at the water creeping up on that bench! They had to put yellow caution tape around this area.

Does anyone know what this sign says? Probably "Falls Ahead" for those in canoes and kayaks.
