At last, my friend Arunima stole my jacket to survive, lol :P

Wander along the park's 2 miles of walking, hiking, and biking trails, surrounded by the serene beauty of snow-covered trees and the tranquil sound of frozen cascades.

After this cold venture, we needed a hot brunch! So as one of our friends was from El Salvador, we went to explore some El Salvadorian cuisine in Minneapolis downtown. It was delicious!

Foods from El Guanco Bakery & Cafe

There were like 50-plus types of sweets in that cafe!

I enjoyed every bit of that day. Come, embrace the magic of this natural winter wonderland, where the falls freeze into a captivating masterpiece, creating memories that will linger long after you leave.
