St. Anthony Falls, Stone Arch Bridge, Minneapolis

Stone Arch Bridge

The Stone Arch Bridge is the only bridge of it’s kind along the Mississippi River. Having 23 arches, it is 2100 feet long and contains 100,000 tons of limestone and granite. It was built by railroad baron James J. Hill and completed in 1883. It was originally used as a railroad bridge and carried as many as 48 passenger trains into Minneapolis everyday. Now it is part of the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Trail and used as a walking and bike path. It is significant historical landmark that forms an integral part of  the redeveloped Minneapolis Riverfront. The bridge is just below St. Anthony Falls which is the birthplace of Minneapolis and was the only true waterfall on the Mississippi River.

Serra Cross at Grant Park

If you ever get to Ventura, California be sure to visit the Serra Cross at Grant Park. This cross has been there since 1941 but it replaced a series of crosses that date back to the beginning of the San Buenaventura Mission in 1782. This highly visible cross served as a road sign for travelers in search of the Mission. The view is incredible from the cross and there is an effort underway to beautify the park.

Metamora, Historic Canal Town

Here are some panos from the quaint south eastern Indiana town of Metamora. Also featured are some views of the Duck Creek Aquaduct, perhaps the only functioning aquaduct in the USA. The aquaduct carries the restored canal boat “Ben Franklin” with passengers over the Duck Creek. There are a lot of small shops and galleries here and with several festivals and special events during the year it is a good place to spend a relaxing day or two.
