A lot of visitors to Mt. Rushmore just go to the plaza and walk out. But there is a nice and easy paved trail you can take to get more than the standard view of the monument. This shot is probably my most popular. Again, I probably could take this picture better, today, but I like how I framed the monument with vegetation.
Although Minneapolis St Paul International Airport is the most famous and used of the twin cities airports, there are others. Holman field, for instance, sits right across the river from downtown St. Paul. You may have seen pictures in the past where I took pictures of the field, flooded, from Indian Mounds Park.
Here, I am on the tarmac at Holman Field (I did some flying for work on Friday), and took an opportunity to take a picture of the St. Paul Skyline from the runway at the airport. The Cathedral of St. Paul is that building by itself on the left.
I told my friend Scott before the game that we couldn’t beat a bunch of boy scouts…
Well, I guess the Eagles were boy scouts this week. I’m amazed. The Giants are battered and beat, but pulled out a win.
I’ll take it!
This is Pilot Peak and Index Peak, on the east side of Yellowstone National Park, in the Beartooth Mountain range. The top of the Beartooth Pass remains my personal record for elevation above sea level (not counting airplanes), at 10,947 feet above sea level.
A very sloppy win from the boys in Blue, and they did nothing after the third quarter, but a win is a win is a win.
Nicks may not be the second coming, but he’s got some talent.
Today’s picture for you. The rest of the pictures in this set (an anniversary party for the company I work for) are not likely to interest any of you, but I liked how my picture of the Gazebo at the Country Club came out.
I had no idea what a Gazebo was until, don’t laugh, I encountered one in the text adventure game Zork II…
