When we were kids and visited our grandmother’s house in Brainerd, our father would take us on walks through the neighborhood. We always had a ton of fun. Sometimes we would walk to the Clarence T. Jones Observatory.
A bit overgrown now, these are the steps that lead to the observatory. I ventured up most of the way, but I chickened out toward the top. It was pretty deserted. No need to get attacked – so I walked back down and got this shot.
But it did bring back lots of fond memories.
