Just a stone throw southwest of Alexandria’s Lake Mary is the north end of 263 acre Pocket Lake. I was at Pocket last week and took a few photos from the air. Most of the Pocket Lake homes are at the west/southwest and south end of the lake. So, a pretty quiet setting for the people that own a property at Pocket or make use of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Public Access at the south end of the lake. It is also a convenient location for reaching Alexandria to shop or have fun. Even from the southernmost point of the lake it is only about an 18 minute drive to Big Ole.
