Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
Bird's-eye view of the trees
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
These stairs will meet the skyway.

Here's a curious little room at the end of the circulation ramp. What could they be selling there?
8:32 PM The glare is gone. Elapsed time: 1 hour (approximately 3 innings).
This is a little section of what looks like a finished foundation. It will be approximately below the Pro Shop (I think).
This will be a great sight on game nights.
Did you notice the flowers?
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
This may look like just some guy (perhaps a spy) headed for the train. But it's actually the Northstar engineer!
Do you think somebody's already cooking hot dogs out there?

If you are into shade, there are lots of opportunities. This is from the last row in section 108 -- scoreboard not blocked in the least.

From an earlier visit: Don't bother with those escalators either. They were also roped off. And how about a bench? Or a planter? Or even a trash can? That woman is doing the only thing she can: leaning up against a post to do her texting.

Love the lighted, translucent panel
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
One of the many supports being built over the tracks.
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
Steps, skyway, and plaza intersect.

Just some of the lumiaries who turned out for the unveiling (Terry is clearly thinking about Sidney Ponson).
Not me, but it might as well be.
