Mississippi River at Minneapolis: East River Flats Park(Filed under: Parks & Sights)
This shot was taken from the far eastern end of the East River Flats Park in Minneapolis, looking upriver. The bridge you can just see in the distance is Franklin Avenue. Most of the East River Flats Park is located below the University of Minnesota and the bluffs. There's a parking lot on the western end but as you go east it turns into a bike trail that follows the shoreline for a ways, at one point narrowing to a cantilivered bridge over the water. There's a small waterfall at one point along the trail, and at several places the land is so low it's often in danger of flooding.
It's one of my favorite bits of nature in the midst of the city.
