Minnehaha Falls

Minnehaha Falls is a popular landmark in south Minneapolis.  The Minnehaha Creek begins at Lake Minnetonka in the western suburbs of Minneapolis and weaves its way through the south west suburbs connecting several lakes along the way. At the falls the creek dramatically plunges 53 feet before resuming its path to the Mississippi which is only about a mile away. During the winter the falls is mostly frozen and parts of the park surrounding the falls is closed. As you can see from this photo that I took Saturday the water is open on the falls even though there is still a lot of ice around.

Among all the links today i have been looking for waterfalls, and am not disappointed. We are three who posted them. Yours is real spectacular because of the big body and the ice still near it, as if they are falls too. How so beautiful.
