Day 8 of Loving MN Winter

By : Carolyn · February 8, 2017

I #lovemnwinter! Today, I love my commute.

By Bri Whitcraft

My commute takes me along West River Parkway along the Mississippi River, crossing at the Franklin Avenue Bridge. As I rush to work and meander home, I can't help but smile. It amazes me that I'm even in the city. Bald eagles soar above me on crisp, sunny mornings, and owls hoot at me in the pitch blackness of the early evening. My favorite is crossing the Mississippi River — it's never the same — roiling, rambling, rushing, freezing, thawing, but always moving forward.

These photos are why I #lovemnwinter. I miss crossing the Mississippi River every day on my commute. It is such a living, breathing creature.  Thanks for sharing, Bri!
