Minnehaha Falls

Over the weekend, Bill and I decided to finally go check out Minnehaha Falls. I really don't know how both of us have lived in Minnesota for most of our lives and never been. We had some friends who recently went and shared on social media that finally gave us the push.

While a beautiful Saturday afternoon on a holiday weekend may seem like a great time to go, it probably wasn't the best. It was crazy busy. But it was definitely worth it! Check out a few of my pics below...

The water is exceptionally high this year, which I guess is making everything extra "gushy"... So, it might not always be quite so awesome. The water was really high everywhere around and some areas of the park are actually blocked off because they're so flooded.

These were just two shots of the main falls area. The first one was from high up, the second from below right at a stone bridge that crosses over (like the one you can see at the top of the falls in the second photo).

We will definitely be going again. We didn't really know what to expect, so we were both wearing sandals. And in case you are planning to go check it out, there are LOTS of stairs if you plan on going down (and eventually back up)! Another trip with some appropriate hiking shoes/boots is definitely in order!
