A Visit to the Falls

This morning, The Youngest and I spent a few minutes at Minnehaha Falls, one of our very favorite local natural wonders, and saw something pretty exciting.

The weather was a little warmer today (in truth, 20 degrees felt like Florida today) and the water was running freely under the ice.
Then we heard a tremendous crash and a giant chunk of ice fell off of the falls. 
There were lots of people out today; climbing on the ice, taking photos, power walking in the milder weather, and we all looked at each other in wonder and awe at the power of nature.


  1. That is so amazing. I'm tempted to jump in the car. We barely even have snow here. :(

    1. It's a great joy to have this amazing natural beauty right in our city.
