Minnesota is the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, although there are actually 11,842 that are 10 acres or more in size. Lake Minnetonka is Number nine on the list in size at 14,004 acres. Minnetonka comes from the Dakota Sioux tribe’s name for the lake, “Minne” meaning “water” and “tonka” meaning “big” and, as this origin suggests, the Minnetonka area was first inhabited by native peoples of the Sioux tribes. Todays post includes several sunset shots over a few days of taking pictures from the dock and along the shore.
