Dakota County 3 has finally been resurfaced from Inver Grove Heights to Rosemount. It's a swoopy road heading south out of the St Paul area and I've been using it as an escape route. My destinations have primarily been Murphy-Hanerhan in Prior lake and Whitetail Woods in Rosemount.
A May 3rd trip to Murphy Lake.
Some of the first green starting to pop up.
Within a week all the leaves would be back.
Murph is a non-motorized lake. Perfect for a kayak or canoe.
The pedal bikes have been seeing far more use than previous springs as I'm very fortunate to have a biking family, all working from home. We've been exploring the Mississippi River bottoms on our lunch brakes and after work. I think we all love and appreciate cruising through the woods and taking in the sights and sounds.
