Re: Minnesota 2015

We’re still at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Minnesota 2015

We’re starting pictures from a new (I guess old) trip, to Minnesota, 2015. We’ll start off with a nice neighborhood near where my husband used to live. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1734/41822299354_bcc70bbe2f_c.jpg As you probably know, Minnesota has many lakes. Here is a shot of one. https://c2.st...

Re: Kentucky 2017 Part 5

We rented one of these rooms at Mammoth Cave. At first, I saw a big, black, unwanted triangle top right. As I thought about how to get rid of it, I realized it was really part of the picture. It is a roof type of thing, made obvious by lightening it a bit. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/911/419094311...

Just outside is a nice patio. Or maybe a deck. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/795/39647122860_1842633695_c.jpg Metal plants don’t die.
