Minnesota Dreamin'

No summer could ever be complete for me without at least one visit to Minnesota.  I think my home state is beautiful year round (yes, even when it's -40 Fahrenheit in the middle of January), but it's definitely on its best behavior in the summer.  Lakes, trees, and brilliant blue skies are just the beginning.  There's also the powerful energy that gets created when 5 million people do everything they can to take advantage of the warmth while it lasts.  Minnesotans don't waste a single minute of summer. 

Given all that, and the fact that I dearly missed friends and family, I could hardly wait for my most recent trip home.  Memorial Day weekend in the Twin Cities turned out to be exactly what I needed.  Here's a short photo diary of four glorious days in the North Star State:

It looks like a lovely place! This is part of the America I want to see. Although I may visit in the summer rather then in the winter, winter is good to I'm sure but... ;-)

Tanya: I just finished reading a fascinating glimpse into the life of a fellow Minnesotan of yours -- one Bronislau Nagurski:

Worthwhile even if you know or care not at all for American football -- and if you do, essential.

@Zhu, Oh, definitely visit in the summer. You live in Canada, so you can already imagine what our winters are like in Minnesota...

@Ted C, I'm a huge American football fan. Gotta support my Vikings!
