On The Way To Tangletown

"The sky is alive, proving to all regardless of what the ground is saying, spring has sprung." - Me

On The Way To Tangletown

Yesterday's adventure begins at a peaceful setting.

Lakewood Cemetery lifts spirits, while celebrating memories; in matters of yesterday's stories, that otherwise would be forgotten.

Lakewood Cemetery also celebrates life with many unions of marriage taking place here as well.

The old trolley looks the same, as it did roaming the city streets of Minneapolis years ago.  Today, it carries folks right along sections of Lakewood Cemetery beginning from the Linden Hills Neighborhood.

The old street car travels between Lake Calhoun and where my mother rests.

Just a few short blocks from here is Tangletown, a Minneapolis neighborhood created by Harry Wild Jones, also buried in Lakewood Cemetery.

I always enjoy a stroll behind the scenes of Tangletown.

I learned a most interesting story of how this telephone booth arrived here.

In every walk through nature, especially places where strangers wander, you're always gifted with far more than you'd ever hoped to see. - Me

Nice shots.

But really? Getting married at a cemetery? That's a new one for me.

The statue with the man holding the sword is impressive.

You are the sort to see so much. Lucky us readers!

You are educating me about your town - a former blank slate.
