This is a brief update to my changing seasons, changing perspectives photo diaries begun earlier this year, using Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis as the focal point

May 2012

September 2012

The continuing drought this fall, the end of the pretty leaves, and gloomy weather on the Saturdays I haven't been working have provided an excuse for not getting out and about. But a light snowfall on Friday and a heavy storm predicted for Sunday, made me decide to take advantange of Saturday's mild temperatures and brilliant blue sky.

The snow on Friday was fairly light, and by the time I managed to get out to the park the sun was melting off a lot of it--but it made for a nice day's walk. The numbered views correspond to the views in the earlier diaries.

I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back for more pictures. I'd like to get out there with more snow, but snow means access routes can be a little slick (and I'm kind of a clod in the winter).  So to make up for my past laziness, here are a few more shots from around the park and following the creek path down to the Mississippi.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
