I see an opportunity in this view for an Abbey Road-style promotional photo! Mauer, Morneau, Nathan and Cuddyer walking toward the ballpark. The only question: which one takes off his cleats?

The bridge is Seventh Street.
Here we are waiting for the first train to arrive at the station (Nov 14).
Do you need to know the score?

These images are found at the top of the staircase, which leads to the Suite Level.
The sign reads, "Mortenson Radio Channels".
The process of building the canopy is really amazing to watch.

This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.
The finished product.
This little pathway snakes between the LRT tracks and the Environmental Services Building, emptying into the parking area surrounding the HERC. It could be for maintenance, but it looks more like it's for convenience.
The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.

Nine spots for hops bats.
Staircase entrance. You cannot miss them.

The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
