It has been a beautiful weekend and we earned it after the winter we just had. This shot was taken at Pickerel lake, which is located just west of Harriet Island Regional Park. it is a small lake, across the road from the Mississippi River. It is also on the bike trail system. One of the great things about living in St. Paul is that there are lakes and rivers right in the city. Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake but fishing is. A great spot for bird watching, peace and quiet, and photography too.
