I love finding one of the more unique plants of the woods. Although listed as common, I have not come across very many of them in my explorations of the north woods. You can learn more about this plant here.

Wet Rocks on a Cold Day
During a snowy, wet spring day, I took a short hike at Jay Cooke State Park to check the water level on the St. Louis River. The river still has a bit of ice around the edges but, the main channel is open and flowing. As I climbed around the rocks, I discovered this bit of color.
Ice Abstracts: Series #1

Take time to view each image and let your mind interpret what the eyes see. Let your imagination run wild.
At the Edge of Thawing
Temperatures are rising and the ice is melting, adding it’s water to the lake drop by drop.
North Dakota Prairie
I recently traveled around parts of North Dakota and had time to capture a few shots that I felt give a sense of the open spaces that exist in the western part of our country. One of these days I hope to spend time slowly exploring these wide open places under the big sky.

The Lowry Ave Bridge, Introduction
I don’t typically do my posts as a series, but I will break with tradition in this instance. I’ve had my eye on this bridge for a couple of years and finally made time to pay it a visit.
The Lowry Ave Bridge crosses the Mississippi River north of downtown Minneapolis, and with it’s more contemporary style, is a departure from many of the older stone and metal bridges that span the river in Minneapolis and St. Paul. For more history on this bridge:

I feel that each perspective deserves separate attention and comments. I will be presenting both color and b/w versions of most of the images, you can decide which you prefer.

To The Horizon
Much of the western part of the U.S. consists of wide open spaces and driving through these areas exposes the traveler to amazing vistas along the way. I can’t recall how many times we would crest a pass and see nothing but miles and miles of space all the way to the horizon. Then you would climb again and there would be another vista of the road going on for miles and miles to the horizon. Next time I make this trip I intend to stop more often and capture some these amazing vistas.
