It could serve as a dungeon if not for the bright, 8-foot, high-output ballast fluorescent
lamp I installed overhead, virtually eliminating shadows. It’s the place I retreat to when
life smacks me between the eyes. This place is my fly-tying shop, located two half-flights

cement, and slightly stale backpacks. The homemade 6-foot L-shaped bench sits directly
under the lights. For about $60, I created a sort of Shangri La in my home. Well, $60 for

"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” – Oscar Wilde

In the Fall of 2022, folks from the DNR, Dakota County Parks and Trout Unlimited did the initial stream walks to decide if we should do the next 3500 feet of Trout Brook, just below the original section, and then to do the initial design concept. This took a couple more walks including with eligible contractors from which we hired the contractor. We were to begin in July of 2023 but because of several delays we started in early September and finished in early October. We restored about 3500 feet of Trout Brook and added additional habitat features at the top and bottom of the original project (about 600 feet).
