    These pics bring back many happy memories of Faribault. I grew up on a farm a mile south of Dundas…and Dundas, Northfield and Faribault were my main “stomping grounds.” Remember one year, I took pics of the high water by the Woolen Mill dam and the next week took pics of about 14″ of snow in the same place. (Of course that was a long time ago and perhaps my memory has stretch things a bit…but it is pretty firm there!)

    • Thanks for sharing your memories of the area. I was walking the rec trail in North Alexander Park just this evening and met a young man from the metro who’d given an Uber ride to a passenger dropped off at Shattuck. He decided to look around town a bit, landing at 10,000 Drops Distillery and then the rec trail. He commented on how beautiful and peaceful our community. It was refreshing to hear the positive opinion of a visitor. I told him more about Faribault and invited him to return.
