This is near the entrance to Minnehaha Falls Park, a name that might be familiar to people who know Longfellow's poem "Hiawatha". Or rude parodies therof.
The view from the top
This is the Hiawatha Gardens. The poem is engraved in a sandstone circle around the fountain.
We decided to have lunch at the celebrated seafood café in the park. There was a half hour wait to order then another half hour wait for the food but the "fish basket" would have fed thousands and was worth the wait.
