This is the bike trail they want to run the Lightrail through

For some reason, the ruling class thinks that we need to have a train from downtown to Eden Prairie. And so, they want to spend millions of dollars running a train trough one of the most-used biking corridors in the city. I thought Minneapolis wanted people biking to work, but a stupid noisy train to haul suburbanites to their corporate jobs is better than having people who actually pay for the place ride their bikes to work. There are many variations on the plan including digging an 80-foot deep tunnel through the area for the trains instead. Incredibly expensive, dumb. How about no train to the suburbs? We don’t need it.

Lake of the Isles Infrared Sunrise

This week of the 100 Post Challenge, I will be sharing one of my favorite alternative views of reality, Infrared. This was taken from the dock, just down hill and to the west of Saturday’s photo. Infrared is the light just beyond our vision of the red scale. Many animals can see it, including birds. Trees reflect it and the sky, being blue, shows up as black. It’s a beautiful, other-worldly look to me.
Yes, it’s a special camera.
