The View From The Hill
I've always liked it here on this hill that over looks Baker Playground on the West Side. I have many memories from here sliding in the winter, playing football on the field below, skating on the ice rink when there is ice, shooting baskets into the hoop just out of frame to the right, baseball at times, flying a kite in the spring, once got a boomerang caught in the largest tree on the far side of the field. But the view, oh the view can be wonderful at times. There is an indoor rec center behind be where I am standing. You can see just above the treeline and into and beyond the East St Paul neighborhood, plus downtown St Paul is a lot more visible than it is here in this photo.
