All Over The Place

There has been quite the hiatus with posts on this blog. I hope this next series of things doesn't disappoint. The next few sets of photos are from all around Minnesota (and Ohio) and illustrate many different things going on around the state (and then football shots of course).
This series is from Jensen Air Field which is a small grass airstrip in Rosemount, MN. The tight community of pilots has been there since the 80's.

There are only a few shots from Minnesota Roller Girls practice. However much more from around the state after the "read more..."

The next week I traveled to the Iron range with reporter Jesse VanBerkel to learn more about a study by the U on miners and repertory cancer. I found out the hard way by homeland security you're not allowed to take pictures of active mines.
This is a panoramic of Leonidas (an inactive mine);

Then it was off to Columbus Ohio this weekend for the Ohio State vs. Minnesota Game for the Daily. It was a crazy game atmosphere that just narrowly tops the TCF Stadium opening.
100,000+ intense fans;

It is now known that Decker's injury is season ending. This will be my last shot of him for a while I guess;

Hope you enjoyed. Apologies for taking so long.

The game was exciting to the bitter fumbled end. Dissapointing to not see the Gophers win, but it was a great game to watch down to the last few seconds.
