My blogging friend Lois at On Pets and Prisoners has invited me to participate the 7-Day Nature Photography Challenge. Lois is a wonderful blogger. Please visit her blog and say hi 😉
The mission is to post a nature photograph for 7 days and to nominate a fellow blogger each day. Since many bloggers have done this challenge already, I would like to invite anyone who is interested in this challenge to participate. It is fun!
Last night my husband asked me what we were going to do today. Since this is the last day of this photo challenge, it would be nice to end it with some good pictures of 2 or 3 beautiful Minnesota state parks.
“If we drive along the Mississippi river, we will hit at least 3 state parks,” I said.
He didn’t agree. “More naked trees?” he asked.
This morning I woke up with a cold. Lacking energy, I thought maybe I had no choice but posting some old photos. But it is such a beautiful day; I don’t want to stay home! We pumped our bike tires. Five minutes later, we were on the Douglas State Trail.
The Douglas State Trail is a paved 12.5 mile, multiple use trail developed on an abandoned railroad grade. This trail crosses outstanding rural scenery, traversing some of the richest agricultural land in Minnesota.
The trail begins in northwestern Rochester, travels through the small town of Douglas (for which the trail is named) and terminates in Pine Island. It is generally level and wheelchair accessible.

I want to thank Lois for inviting me to this challenge. I enjoy getting out of the house more than I thought I would.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
