City of Lakes Loppet Kids Race

City of Lakes Loppet Kids Race

OK, time to brighten things up. I’ve been posting a lot of night pictures lately and though I like the colors and the mystical effects, it gets heavy with all that black. So today I bring you the ‘content’ of the Loppet: one of the races. This was the beginning of the kids race. If you have been to Uptown for the art fair, you know this place. That gray roof above the flag is the bus terminal on Hennepin. The skiers are on the boulevard by the Greenway (for the locals, it’s called The Mall). They actually haul in snow and cover the streets all the way to the lake.

This is the start and finish line for the kids race, they go out to the lake, circle around and come back.

    When I was living in MN, I thought that cross country skiing was the very best part of winter and couldn’t wait for the snow. This photo really brings back my racing days!
