Mounds View Indian Burial Grounds

Located up on a bluff on the north side of the Mississippi River amidst some winding roads, a lovely park and gorgeous old homes is Mounds View Indian Burial Grounds.  It is perched atop a hill with views of both Saint Paul and Minneapolis.  The burial grounds are big mounds all in a row, covered with grass and surrounded by a fence.

Also located there is an aviation beacon from the 1920's that used to help light the way from Saint Paul to Chicago.  It is one of the few remaining beacons that has been preserved and restored to its original condition.  The Saint Paul Regional Airport is just on the other side of the river, down at river level.

Pretty cool spot for a walk or a sit or a motorcycle ride.

Hello Pretty Girl!

That's what I say everytime I see my city from afar.....Hello Pretty Girl.  Never loved a city like this one before.  Enlarge the photo by clicking on it to see Watergate Marina and Harriet Island Park in the foreground.  You can also catch the Capitol building to the left of the skyline.

National Holiday!!!!

See this street all clear of cars?  Know what it means?  It means that today is my favorite holiday in the universe!  Today is STREET SWEEPING DAY!!!!  And although it will take some time for all the streets in Saint Paul to be cleaned, it means the roads are now safe for riding MOTORCYCLES and BICYCLES!  Wheeeeeee!!!!!  Everybody celebrate!  Winter?  You may officially fuck off!

Because sometimes, things break.

Especially when they are things boys use to get out their aggression on a giant slab of unforgiving ice.  Tucked back in an alley, this is an annex of sorts to George's Shoe Repair.  LOVE the logo and all the other warning signs around it.  Alley-way off Grand Avenue.
