the skyway

I am in Minneapolis this weekend for another Bears’ loss.

I am staying downtown. If you have ever been to Minneapolis during the cold weather months (September to May) you probably have experienced this city’s skyway.

The skyway links most of the downtown buildings and allows your average Minnesotan to amble about without going outside.

It is very handy but it also is very creepy especially at night and on the weekends.

Some parts are very vibrant and bustling but others are incredibly desolate and depressing.

This is my take from a stroll this afternoon.

  1. Nice photos. Red Bull sponsored a mountain bike time trial through the skyway a couple years ago:
