A Minnesota evening in May: A photo essay May 16, 2019


A QUEST FOR ESCAPE, for peace, for a closeness with nature took me to Shager Park and the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail along Cannon Lake near Faribault Tuesday evening.







In the golden hour just before sunset, I walked the trail, stopping often to photograph my surroundings before landing on a dock overlooking the lake.



These are my photos—images which capture the essence of May in southern Minnesota.





Experience the motion of peace.



See the beauty.



Embrace nature.



And find herein the reason spring in the Bold North so delights those of us who live here.
