Minnesota late winter(Mostly) On The Job.

I think we should have spontaneous holidays.

I mean an official, unplanned day off for everybody with no exceptions.

Today would have been a great day for a surprise holiday.

It was the first day since the on-set of winter where the hint of spring was obvious. It was sunny and pleasantly warm. It would have been the perfect day for an universal “sick day”.

I, conveniently, had an out-of-doors off-the beaten-path task today. The perfect situation for a spontaneous half-day hiatus. So… after the job was done I become covert. I had the camera and, long story short, 50 shutter trips or so later… this photo.

I like it. I hope you like it, too. (In fact I liked it enough to post a bigger image here.)

It’s a picture of a recently thawed river draining a Lake Vermilion area lake. Can you tell where this photo was taken? (Reply with the comment link.)

The answer here tomorrow (or maybe the day after)!


  1. This has to be water making it’s exit from Elbow Lake(West Elbow). Yes? Does the correct answer win anything?
