Gnarly Minneapolis

No Trespassing!
Normally when I head out on my bike, it's to a world of lakes, rivers, and wooded areas. Yesterday, I decided to explore a more gritty side of Minneapolis.

Under Target Field baseball stadium
Refreshment stop at Corner Coffee, Warehouse District
Crossing the Mississippi--mind the gaps
Some missing boards had been recently replaced: that made me feel less unwelcome on this active rail bridge.

Graffiti skyline + actual skyline disappearing in Canadian wildfire haze 
Nordeast (Northeast Minneapolis)
The Ritz is the current home of Ballet of the Dolls.

Crossing a tributary of the Mississippi near downtown Minneapolis
This abandoned rail bridge has no guard rails, and the gaps between the boards would trap a foot. I kept my eyes firmly on the path.

Parking lot, Egg and I Restaurant, Uptown
At the end of my meander, I met up with my friend, Sharon, for a highly caloric "Eggs Commodore." The ladies at The Egg and I call me "Mr. Commodore."
