I like to take pictures.
I like to live in St. Paul. I like to blog.

Still at the top of Ramsey Hill
This is Lookout Park. It has a great view of downtown St. Paul. In the late 1850's Carpenter Hotel was built on this site. The hotel had a mansard roof with a balustraded captain's walk on it so patrons could take in the view. The hotel is rumored to have burned down in the 1880's but no one is 100% sure if it burned or was razed but it's been a park ever since.
