Walking around old Mill City

20120629-230714.jpg

Today I took a walking tour of historic Minneapolis, which was originally known at Mill City. I got to cross the Mississippi River at the place where it has its first waterfall (which now has a cement cap over it to keep it from eroding) and see the old mill sites that got their power from that waterfall, giving Minneapolis its location and life. You can check out my photos here .

There are also quite a few wildflower photos from one of the city parks that I visited along the river, but I don’t know what most of the flowers are. Any ideas?
