More details: In early December the Star Tribune held Behind the Lens: 2019 Photos of the Year at the Minnesota History Center. The photos represent travel pictures from around the world.

Each week one picture is chosen and printed in the Travel section of the Sunday paper. At the end of the year one of the pictures is chosen as the picture of the year. This years 2019 winner was Chuck Freiss. The winning photo was of a coyote walking the banks of Madison River in Yellowstone National Park in the winter. Chuck Freiss just wrapped up an exhibit at the Marshall Area Fine Arts Council, titled “Winter’s Beauty”, where this photo was featured.
