Photograph of these geese was taken at the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park in Minnesota. The Mississippi River defines the boundary of the 160-acre park. Coon Rapids Dam spans 1,000 feet across the Mississippi River between the cities of Brooklyn Park and Coon Rapids. These geese were enjoying the upper area of the dam before they migrate south for the winter.
