The Metrodome is converted to its football configuration after the Twins game on August 29, 2002
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
For those not wishing to suffer through my media rant, please enjoy this picture of my lilacs in full bloom.
Looking back toward the park from just beyond the north end of the Northstar platform.
Stairs and escalator down to the platform
