This evening was really nice. I took the Road King out for a ride and headed over to the east side of the Mississippi River near the Stone Arch Bridge in downtown Minneapolis.
This is a view from the top of the Stone Arch Bridge facing west towards of downtown.
Looking north (right) from this side of the bridge, I noticed a neat little wooden footbridge and a few guys fishing.
I wondered how to get down there and just to the right of the entryway to the Stone Arch Bridge I found this wooden staircase.
I walked down and got a great view of the bridge.
Here's the view looking back up at the stairs.
There was a path but it was not well marked and a little overgrown.
I followed the path through the woods to the little footbridge I saw from the Stone Arch Bridge.
Here's a better look at the Stone Arch Bridge from the footbridge.
I headed back and here's a nice view of the Stone Arch Bridge framing the Guthrie Theater with downtown skyscrapers just visible off to the right.
To do all this exploring, I parked near the U of M Southeast Steam Plant (below) and Hennepin Island Park on SE 6th Ave
