Sharing a few of my favorite Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area pictures from the 2016. Although I enjoyed cycling trails all over Minnesota last year, I love my metro area best of all. So many trails, so many beautiful views. I live one mile off a trail and once I hit that trail, I can ride for miles on end in any number of directions all on trails. I would not want to live anywhere else but right here in my beautiful Twin Cities.
High Bridge in St. Paul with a few wild turkeys in foreground. Lillydale Trail on the south side of the Mississippi River is one of my favorite metro trails.
North Cedar Tail with Minneapolis skyline in the distance.
St. Paul skyline from Indian Mounds Park.
Stone Arch bridge in Minneapolis. This year the trail along the Mississippi finally reopened all the way through after being closed for a couple years following a mudslide.
Barge on the Mississippi heading towards downtown St. Paul. I love the St. Paul waterfront!
Minneapolis skyline where one building reflects on another. Wish the color had come through – the reflection was bright gold.
