What are the Things to DO??
St. Paul Winter Carnival
After that, we headed to the famous Frozen Falls! Be well prepared for the co00llldd!
On the backdrop of this photo, you can see the magnificent 53-foot-tall Minnehaha Falls. During winter the whole waterfall gets frozen and turns into glaciers. This is one of the most beautiful frozen waterfalls in the US.I have a full trip plan for this waterfall, to learn more click here.
The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
The next stop was the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. In Minneapolis, there’s a big spoon with a cherry on top called Spoonbridge and Cherry. It’s part of a huge sculpture park. An artist named Claes Oldenburg made it in 1985. The cherry weighs 1,200 pounds and shoots water!
At the center of the park, there is an underground water tank, which keeps 4 million gallons of runoff water out of the storm sewers and reduces the pollution of the Mississippi River. It also helps to water the park!
Next, we went to see the huge and colorful mural of Bob Dylan. It’s the biggest one the artist Eduardo Kobra has made in the U.S.
Detroit Lake Ice Palace
Detroit Lakes celebrated its 150th birthday with the return of the Legend of King Isbit. We planned our trip keeping that in mind. And so we ended up our trip here. It is so cold that we could bearly get our hands out for the pictures!
See you in some other part of the world, till then Happy Exploring with Haque’s EYE!
