The very best time to attend the fair is in the evening on the first day. Everything is fresh and smells nice and isn’t trampled. Happy Minnesota State Fair.
I just love road trips and I remember taking this shot like it was yesterday instead of six years ago.
I have been watching as the buildings in the foreground are being demolished. On the bottom of the photo to the right there you can see a crane and other equipment. The gray area is where the jail used to be. To the left of that the buildings are missing windows and the demolition process has begun.
The “1” on the top of the 1st national bank building is being repaired and has been dark since January. Repairs are supposed to be done by the end of the summer.
It was a gloomy rainy day but we went to the rose garden anyway.
The sunrise is best over a lake.
We need to start getting ready for a cold and snowy winter at least according to the folk at Farmer’s almanac. As you can probably tell it was below zero when I took this photo.
