Photographed along Lake of the Isles on a beautiful autumn day.
This week’s challenge is the theme “Together”. Here are a few shots I took earlier today while out seeing homes on the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Home Tour.
Former Railroad Bridge—Now Midtown Greenway Trail
Bridge Photo for October 13, 2010
This channel lies between Lake of the Isles and Lake Calhoun. Bikers, walkers, runners, and others make use of the trails and paths that surround the lakes. People travel this waterway by canoe, paddle boats, and kayaks during warm weather months. In winter months, people take advantage of these frozen, open spaces for walking, ice skating, cross-country skiing, and other activities.
A beautifully detailed bridge at Lake of the Isles by Dean Parkway.
This classically inspired concrete-arch bridge was the result of a design competition held by the Park Board. The winning designers were William Cowles and Cecil B. Chapman. Completed in 1911. Still beautiful and functional today.

This elegant and beautiful building is located at 2719 Humboldt Avenue South in Minneapolis. It’s a short walk to both Lake of the Isles and Uptown. The association is comprised of seven units, six that are almost 1800 square feet in size and one garden level unit that is less than 1000 square feet.
The building was originally built as an apartment house and retains most, if not all, of the exquisite exterior detailing from when it was constructed in 1913. The front steps lead to a two-story, exterior entry area; the doorway is framed in an arch and the opening at the second level is also arched. The top floor units have arched windows along the front of their units which provide continuity with the framing arches on the first and second floors.
There is currently one unit on the market, priced at $349,900.

Tonight was the Luminary Loppet on Lake of the Isles. It’s a sight to behold. What’s a luminary loppet, you ask? Here’s how it’s described on the official site:
“Thousands of ice luminaries, an ice pyramid and the Ice-Cropolis! Bon fires, coffee, hot cocoa and cookie stations. Non-competitive – registration is open to snowshoers, walkers* and skiers alike.”
