Winter Wonderland

Here we are, facing our first real arctic blast of the winter, where temperatures plummet below zero, the inside of your nostrils freezes the second you walk out the door, and you just can't wear enough long underwear. It's just not a real Minnesota winter if we don't have at least one of these cold blasts! So in celebration of one of the many things that makes Minnesota remarkable, here are some great photos of the river gorge in all its winter glory.

The first two, taken from the east end of the Ford bridge looking north up the river, were shot by one of our most dedicated FMR volunteers and Gorge Stewards, Tim Boyle. If you are interested in seeing more of his photos or purchasing some of his photos, visit him at or

And here are a couple more, taken by FMR's own Watershed Program Director Trevor Russell. These were taken from behind the frozen Minnehaha Falls.
