Now it's a party

You can only call it a party after Snoopy collapses.
Seventh Place, downtown St. Paul.

Sticking to the bridge theme. Here's one from just before the leaves started to turn. I was wandering around in Hidden Falls Park in St. Paul.

Same bridge, different day

Same bridge we saw in the last post, from a different angle. Strolling around the cities has really brought home the concept of just how much water surrounds and intersects the St. Paul and the Minneapolis.

Stumbling around Crosby Lake Farm in the dark, waving a flashlight at imaginary things in the woods. Then the sky started to brighten and I got to see this along the Mississippi River.

Putting the fall in Minnehaha Falls

Leaves are starting to turn; time to admit that summer really is winding down. Drove past Minnehaha Falls last night; couldn't resist stopping off for a few shots (photos, not drinks...not that I'm opposed to either).

The hard line

Tracks and elevators somewhere in the hinterlands of Minneapolis.

All aboard the slob car. Direct service to the Twin Cities and points beyond.

Dry land for a change

Bridge at Hidden Falls Park, St. Paul, MN. Took this photo about a week ago, before the recent spate of rain. Frequently this area is filled with water running in from the Mississippi River, but the river was down a good foot or more on the day I was there.

Fall in

High above the Mississippi River on a rainy, breeze Saturday night. The path down to this vantage point was a slippery, muddy mess, but I made sure to stay way the heck back from the edge.

In the alley behind the Monte Carlo in Minneapolis, open for business since 19-freakin'-06. One of the oldest establishments in the historic warehouse district.

MPLS all aglow.If I'm not mistaken, that's the 10th Avenue Bridge in the foreground, but I wasn't exactly sure where I was, so don't quote me in any professional journal or if you're on a game show.

Reach the beach

Bidding farewell to the day from the top of a lifeguard station, Lake Calhoun, Minneapolis.

This looks like the work of Willoughby J. Edbrooke!

The Landmark Center in downtown St. Paul, MN, designed by the aforementioned Mr. Edbrooke, who served as Supervising Architect of the U.S. Treasury Department from 1891-92. Construction began in 1892 and was completed in 1902.
