Venturing outside of the Twin Cities…

Yesterday I had to make the 2.5 hour drive from Minneapolis to Winona, MN for a meeting that barely lasted 2 hours. On the way there I was focused… but on the way back I was determined to enjoy it. My former supervisors started a debate over which route was faster – the longer interstate path or the 30 miles shorter scenic route. I figured since the weather was a nice, sunny, snow-free 25 degrees I’d go for both, opting for the scenic route on the way back. It was highly uneventful and the scenic route was definitely not as exciting as I had expected. Nonetheless, I was able to snap some cool photos along the way. Keep in mind, I was driving so my eyes were on the road and my camera was pointing where ever my hand wanted it to… LOL… I was surprised at how nice some of the photos turned out… Enjoy!


Sharon wrote a blog about how much she misses the sight of snow now that she has moved to Florida. Eat your heart out girl! You’ll never see this kind of beauty in Florida!
