Gopher Football

Made it to my first football game at the TCF Bank Stadium this past Saturday. The Golden Gophers squared off against the Syracuse Orangemen. The Gophers were victorious by a score of 17-10 and have a 4-0 non-conference record.

Split Rock Lighthouse

It was put in place in 1910 out of necessity for the shipping industry. With the advent of the GPS, all it's used for today is tours and photo opportunities. Well worth the trip to Two Harbors to hear the history of it.

Love the tops of this building in downtown Minneapolis. I'm sure the details are often overlooked, but they were quite creative back in the day.

Stone Arch Bridge

I've never photographed the Stone Arch Bridge, but I see many photos of it from the local bloggers. This photo is from a distance and I was in quite a hurry. Here is more info about the bridge:
The Stone Arch Bridge is the only bridge of its kind over the Mississippi River. It is made of native granite and limestone, and measures 2100-feet long by 28-feet wide. The bridge consists of 23 arches, and spans the river below St. Anthony Falls in Minneapolis.

Indiana Harbor

Indiana Harbor leaving port in Duluth. This cargo ship, for sure, was 1000 feet long. I don't recall what it was hauling, but out it goes onto Lake Superior. Indiana Harbor leaving port in Duluth.
