Another warm weekend, thank you El Nino!  After spending a little time at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, we wandered over to the James Hill House. I thought it was ironic that we would see a great old steam powered locomotive pulling out of Union Station the very next day...

The Minnetonka Center for the Arts had a great gallery full of interesting and beautiful original art in many medias.  It's a wonderful place to visit. I got some great ideas for a project or two after this winters visit. 

James Hill was the builder of the Great Northern Railway... This railroad tycoon's mansion can be toured and it was ironically just a few miles from...

 The North Pole Express... and the Milwaukee 261 steaming underway.

Here's a treat, the 261 leaving the station...

Oops, here's the rest of the whistle!

Last but not least, seen on the side of the road... this giant beaver!

A fine school mascot!
