Sunday In My City: Falls Park

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.

What a fantastic series showing all the seasons.
I can only imagine a river and falls being frozen.

Love them in every season. I'm guessing they are the inspiration for the name of the town?

Found the web cam! But it's so dark I can see much - - - oh, but WAIT - - - what are those white flakes falling past the cam???? Please tell me you aren't getting SNOW tonight! I'm gonna believe they are just white rain drops.

It is rain the storm has let up some but it is still raining pretty steady so all the lights that usually make it so you can see the falls at night are reflecting making it difficult to see much of anything.
