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 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.
