Lake Mille Lacs is located north of the Twin Cities. It is a large lake (207 square miles) but not particularly deep for such a large lake, at a maximum of 42 feet. It is a very popular fishing spot. I hadn’t been up there in awhile, and it was a nice gloomy day, so I got some pictures I liked. This is Rainbow Island, just a little bit off the shore. It is so close to the water level, it almost looks like the trees are right on top of the water.
