Autumn in Saint Paul

The last days before the first snow mean it’s time for photography

With the first snow of the 2023-2024 winter upon us, I took the opportunity last weekend to get some autumn photos around downtown Saint Paul, Summit Avenue, and Cathedral Hill.

Every Saint Paulite probably knows where this photo was taken on the south side of the Mississippi River:

The Cathedral of Saint Paul, the Minnesota State Capitol, and part of the downtown Saint Paul skyline emerge through a tapestry of red and orange leaves

This whole “fall” thing is new for this almost-lifelong Phoenician. But that means the first snow of the winter’s upon us. Oh well.
