Minnehaha Park / Falls

Minnehaha Falls A day late on Jacob Fjelde’s birthday in 1855, here I am, in Minnehaha Park. He is who sculpted Hiawatha and Minnehaha, displayed in the Park. It’s a life-size bronze sculpture that depicts Hiawatha carrying Minnehaha across the creek–characters from the poem “Song of Hiawatha” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He also did the statue of Ole Bull in Loring Park. Moving on to Minneapolis’s urban natural centerpiece; the 53ft waterfall. As a tributary of the Mississippi, it is an intensely popular place, in every season. The park itself has an upper and lower, free climb area although its trespassing to walk to the waterfall. BUT no one seems to listen to rules, so they do it all the time.
