An opinion piece in the Star Tribune, "New life for Wirth in the wake of toranado", discusses plans to enhance Theodore Wirth Parkway for the "silent sports" of mountain biking, cross country skiing, trail running, hiking, etc.
Further down the parkway I spotted a surprise visitor in one of the lakes. Seemed a bit prehistoric. Looking around at the vegetation and then seeing a Pileated Woodpecker flap by made me think I had just been drop lifted into the set of Jurassic Park.
Information on "Minne" the Lake Creature is available on the internet.
