minnehaha falls























This is one of my favorite waterfalls to visit. The carved out limestone behind the waterfall is amazing. Zoom view of the top.

Minnehaha Falls is often times mistranslated as "laughing water," however the correct translation from the Dakota language is "curling water."

The 53-foot falls are part of Minnehaha Creek which is a tributary of the Mississippi River.

The park is full of limestone bluffs and beautiful overlooks.
