On the Pathway, Lake Harriet

My wife and I live near a large city lake in Minneapolis that is surrounded by bike and walking paths filled with people whenever the winter snows are gone. In the spring and summer, when the trees are full to bursting and the lakeside canopy is lush and green, the paths often are overlaid with cool shadows as the sunlight tries to nudge its way in. This delightful afternoon, the sun was particularly warm and so the shadows seemed especially inviting.
