I #lovemnwinter! Today, I love Minnehaha dog park.
By Mariah LaQua
Today is my birthday. Rather than expound on the delights and challenges of winter cycling I want to give a shoutout to my dog, Nikita, and the Minnehaha off-leash recreation area.
No matter how hard it gets during the winter, Nikita remains excited, adventurous and insistent that we get outside and get fresh air.
At Minnehaha I get to see her in full glory, sprinting from place to place and always returning to my side to share her wonder with me - even on the coldest days.
Thank you Nikita for keeping me going. And thank you to Minneapolis Parks for creating such a special place for people and their canine companions.
