Gideon's Bay with Tonka Bay in the distance.

Gideon's Bay  (at 8 degrees  below fahrenheit)
It was about 8 below zero with a frigid wind when I took this shot in Excelsior.
From the Excelsior Residents Guide:
Incorporated as a village in 1901, Tonka Bay made history long before. In 1853, Peter Gideon staked out a claim of 160 acres in what is now Tonka Bay and where Gideon’s Bay still bears his name. Gideon successfully propagated his first apples “The Wealthy,” named for his wife, before he died in 1899.
