Mississippi Sunset, Crow Wing State Park
During my week in the Brainerd/Little Falls area, one day we had some pretty cool thunderheads passing over all afternoon. While it never rained where we were, in the evening I drove up to Crow Wing State Park and it had rained there. The park road had puddles on it and everything smelled really fresh. The mosquitoes were also horrible. I stood on the end of the boat access ramp to make this photograph of the clouds as they were breaking up just as the sun was going down. I was swatting at mosquitoes the entire time, but I couldn't bring myself to leave until all the color had faded from the clouds. It was just too beautiful to walk away from, even though I was getting eaten alive!
