The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
Glove from above
The first completed mural
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.

These are the footings for the staircase which will connect the plaza to the skyway.
The finished product. Note that, at the very bottom of this image, you can just barely see the tops of the windows which look into the Champion's Club. (Home Plate Box)

The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
Peering through Gate 34
I took this picture just moments before Morneau's homer landed almost exactly where I had been standing. If only I hadn't wanted to watch the game...
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings
The view through a construction "knothole".
In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
Look at all that blank space. Canvas! (What should go on those walls? A giant schedule perhaps?)
The right field foul pole seen against a backdrop of Butler Square (itself a site of great significance in the history of professional baseball in Minneapolis)

I never think of Rod Carew as a first baseman. But he was.
Those little oval additions are positively laughable!
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
The shade of the canopy gives way to a brief shaft of light. It would do the same again a short while later when the sun passed through that tiny open sliver between the View and Terrace levels.

This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
