The Blue Earth Giant

I decided to venture out into the countryside away from the bright lights of the big city. Where would I go? No question, off to Blue Earth to see the Jolly Green Giant!

Spike Cairn

I found this awesome public art piece along the Kenilworth Bike Trail. Not sure if I can call it a Cairn, but Railroad Spike Jenga doesn’t really sound right. What’s a Cairn? I wrote a big article about cairns a while ago that strangely gets a lot of traffic, like always second to the home […]
