Minnesotan pictures are now here. - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Minnesotan pictures are now here.
These are pictures from my trip back to my old stomping grounds have been posted in their own gallery on my website. I've grouped them into a few sub-albums:

  • Miscellaneous -- Things that didn't fit with the others. aureth should look at this if only for three pictures.
  • Farm Ruins -- I found an old farm about 3 miles from my parents' property that's for sale, with copious ruins on the land. I suspect when I come back for Thanksgiving it will be sold and the old buildings torn down, so photographing this became something of a mission for me. urocyon would be proud.
  • Skidloader -- Because men love powerful toys, cigars and playing in the dirt.
  • Scenic Overlook -- This is the Black River Falls scenic overlook, which you can only reach from the Westbound side of I-90/94. I stopped to use their facilities and ended up taking an additional 45 minute break to tromp up a steep hill in dress shoes, wool slacks and a heavy black long-sleeved shirt so I could get some photographs.
  • Tourist Trap -- The Black River Crossing Oasis, where aureth, jenwolf and I stopped for lunch on our way to CONvergence 2002. It's a gift store, a restaurant, a gas station, a hotel and so much more! It's also home to towering, terrifying fiberglass ... things.

    FARM RUINS?!? Where?

    I think I smell a zombie movie in the making!

    I lived, at one point, only a few minutes drive away from Monroeville, and its semi-famous Mall.

    This is sort of amusing...on our way to the zoo on Monday, we pulled off at a random exit that happened to have a Wendy's for lunch. Imagine my surprise when I saw the Doolittle Cafe. Imagine my further surprise when I saw the resaturant that we had dinner at least year. Completely random, I tell you!
