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.

I've had a few karate lessons there, Lucas. Thanks for reminding me about those times!

Wow! I've never seen anyone doing karate there. That would be an interesting site and an even better photograph.

After three weeks of finally getting the lungs through running the hill, I was able to conquer that damn slope from the hospitals up to the University Club. Fittingly, some kids were there to clap sarcastically for me.

Hey: Great to see a Saint Paul photo blog! I just found this today. I just found all the city photo blogs today.

Sometimes (which is to say "often") I'm really not too observant....

Good stuff. Please keep snapping (images).
