Spring at Green Springs.

6 posts in this topic

In about 1840 Green Springs was open to the public. Folks paid $0.10 to swim here. It was popular until around 1930-40's. People eventually forgot about it and tree's and shrubs buried it until now. It was re-opened in October '08. I havent done any kind of processing to these picture. I hope you like them.

Isnt she beautiful! No she isnt my granddaughter, shame on you wishing that on me a few years to soon! Just kidding. She is my cousins daughter Haylie. She got pretty tired of all the pictures. As for swimming, there is still a six foot "baby" in there they are trying to catch. Stupid people are feeding him. The water is a very pretty mint green but it doesnt smell very minty. Its sulfer water so its pretty stinky.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.
