Enjoying a Day to Oneself in Siouxland, Sioux Falls, SD

There are those days when the weather is nicer in Siouxland, but still not nice enough for some folk. I personally like those days. The wind is brisk and one still has to dress warmly but at times you have a particular place to yourself, or almost to yourself.

It doesn’t happen often, but I try to enjoy those fleeting moments as much as I can in popular places. When the weather becomes warmer, people will swarm the Sioux Falls Park enjoying the sunshine, scenery and spray from the falls. Many photographs will be taken and the sidewalks will be full. At this point, that is probably not a good thing, so one might get a place to wander alone except for one’s thoughts.

    Looks like a lot of water coming over the falls. Is that more than usual? We are kind of saturated here.

      It is a lot of water. Last year when this part of the midwest began flooding because of an early spring rain on still frozen ground and then continued rain into summer and fall there were lots of issues with farmland and highways. With all the snowfall this year up north, expect it to be more of the same. But it can be an awesome sight. Photographed it even higher during the summer of last year and posted that on the blog.
