I am a West Coast girl transplanted eighteen years ago in the Midwest and although I greatly miss the mountains, ocean and all the beauty that can be found in California, Oregon and Washington I love this city. Sioux Falls has a rich and lengthy historical past much of which is centered around the cascades of the Big Sioux River. These cascades are now referred to as The Falls and are located in a beautiful park just blocks from down town Sioux Falls. The falls provide a natural beauty to our city which is enjoyed by many all year round. Today I would like to share this spot in our city that is for me a favorite.
