Lake Calhoun from above 

Here is an aerial photo of Lake Calhoun from google maps. The teardrop pointer indicates where I live.

Minneapolis Chain of Lakes

The bike path around Lake Calhoun is 3.19 miles; around Lake Harriet - the lake at the bottom - is 2.99 miles, around Lake of the Isles (on which Mary Tyler More fictionally lived) is 2.97 miles. These paths are part of the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway - a huge and rambling park all across Minneapolis with over 80 miles of walking and biking paths. It's one of the things that makes Minneapolis a great city to live in. Hight taxes be damned, we have a great quality of life.

I look forward to our light rail being expanded and hope for the eventual implementation of Sky Web Express. Those who hope for Minnesota taxpayers to build the fantastically wealthy owners of the Vikings or Twins an new stadium can screw themselves. Let the owners build them on their own dime if they want.
