I had a great walk this morning around Lake Marion. For those of you not familiar with the Twin Cities metro area, Lake Marion is located approximately 35 miles south of Minneapolis in Lakeville, Minnesota.
My father and I used to go ice fishing on this lake when I was 7-8 years old. It was out in the middle-of-nowhere back then. Now, there’s development all around.
It’s kind of a bummer to see Lake Marion saturated with houses where nothing but woods and open land existed before. On the other hand, you don’t have to navigate the dirt paths and rocks anymore since there is now a nice paved trail to enjoy.
