Re: Minnesota 2015 Part 6

Floating down the river sounds like a good idea. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/46702977505_7cb8d458a9_c.jpg My son patiently waits for me to take several pictures of him atop the tall rock. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47565577172_ce10129a9b_c.jpg Closer.

If you try hard enough, you will bloom, even in rocky places. https://live.staticflickr.com/7874/33691614338_7c9286bfb9_c.jpg Appears to be hewn. But it’s not. https://live.staticflickr.com/7872/46652975755_4bd62ba6f5_c.jpg Massive block. Rocky block. https://live.staticflickr.com/7866/46652975315_4...

Almost a feeding trough for hummingbirds. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7808/33619061758_08b147b149_c.jpg I guess we’ll walk that way. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7913/46580437855_31ee20d875_c.jpg Good place to walk if you like trees. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7864/46580438095_6e8c7cd04f_c....

Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

I remember riding the bus with my mother many years ago to shop at Emery Bird Thayer, as well as Kline's, Macy's, Jone's, and Peck's. Every floor was a separate, big department, including furniture. Of course, I preferred the toy department.

Re: Minnesota 2015 Part 6

About the last group of pictures… Actually, only one picture… If you don’t know how to spell a word, you DON’T put it at the top of a picture in giant, red letters!

Mr. Bee, doing his thing. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7848/40398857743_0964747352_c.jpg I guess I took some liberties with these flowers. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7816/46641106824_ab7c8d41b6_c.jpg These are fine, just as they are.

You can almost make up your own scenes in this red rock. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7859/33437908628_a4d43fc8de_c.jpg This rock likes to break off as if it had been cut. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7897/46590348914_298d228a0f_c.jpg There’s the café where we ate lunch. https://farm8.staticflic...

On the horizon, we see the remains of a mill that burned down years ago. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7846/47025065972_7c9a6990d4_c.jpg The rocks are just there. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7853/46163767335_87a5beecf5_c.jpg My son has a good vantage point. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7880/47025...
