A lovely landscape at the University of Minnesota Arboretum in Chanhassen on Wednesday afternoon.
A meteorologist colleague accompanied me on a tranquil walk through the beautiful grounds. It is so nice to have this arboretum easily accessible as an example of environmental stewardship.
Now picture the flip side that we will enjoy at the Great Minnesota Get-together. Best of both worlds, heh? You betcha.
