Wintertime in Saint Cloud, Minnesota

I haven't done a photo tour in a couple of months now, so I decided it was time to get back out there and get some wintry shots.

I headed upriver to Saint Cloud, 70 miles northwest of the Twin Cities and Minnesota's principal city and hub in its central region. It was an unusually warm day and the first time it had been above freezing in over a month, so people were outside enjoying the "balmy" weather. Only in Minnesota will you see people walking around in t-shirts and shorts in the middle of winter.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota
Population: 67,136
Seat of Stearns County

Nice! Despite the name there isn't a single cloud in the sky.

It really was a beautiful day. It was the first time it had been above 0şC in over a month, and the one of the only sunny days we've had here in Minnesota so far this winter. It's just been one snowstorm after another!

Thanks, Aster. We've still got at least another three solid months of winter left, so there will be MUCH more snow.

Here in the Twin Cities where I live, we have a good 2.5 feet of snow on the ground...to think it's still barely winter!

Nice thread!

You should go to Winona. That is a town that really needs to be photographed. I would love to do it myself but I don't have a car, so it is up to you.

Thanks, Som. I definitely will be going to Winona at some point – my goal is to eventually get every good-sized city in Minnesota.
