Friday afternoon’s run with Bill started at 47th Ave S & 32nd Street, so just to the South of Minnehaha Academy’s high school.
We headed South from there and weaved through a series of streets just in from West River Parkway. This is a quiet, well maintained neighborhood with diverse home styles. Here are some example homes from 48th Ave S near 37th St E:
A couple blocks further South is home to a relatively new development. I don’t know the history of why the homes in this are so much newer (1950’s & 60’s) than the surrounding neighborhood (1920’s), but I bet someone does:
We tucked out to Edmund Blvd for a couple blocks where every home tends to be be a unique style, such as this home that appears to be inspired by Piet Mondrian’s paintings:
Our Southernmost street was Nawahada Blvd, which is the last residential street before Minnehaha Park. Bears Fan Bill’s shoe came untied along that stretch:
Heading North on 41st Ave S, we passed Sanford Middle School:
Then flicked off a kid’s Hummer:
Then passed the Christmas house at 3201 41st Ave S. This house cranks out an amazing light show that it syncs to a low range radio station so you can pull up, tune in, and enjoy the show. On the minus side, they still have a tree scaffolding in their yard in April.
3149 41st Ave S had a fire that has been ruled arson:
And at Lake Street we passed our local Taco Bell before wrapping up our run:
