Sunday Explorations

This Sunday I headed out my Nature Boy to explore an area of the river that I'd never checked out before. 

I've been super into the river as of late, there is so much decaying structure, man made tunnels, and 18th century left-overs down there.  And being able to easily shuck the city and get into the unknown is one of the things that I really cherish about living in Minneapolis and riding a bike.  I want to know every detail, every nook and cranny, and it's most often my bicycle that takes me there.

During my ramblings I stumbled and crossed onto some forbidden areas, found a skate spot, and the best group of graffiti pieces that I've seen in a very long time.

Then I had to cross through this section, which I found a bit disconcerting.

But eventually I made it here, and discovered a treasure trove of art.

awesome. I love that you wandered through the chain links and found such a radical spot. Hope you had beers after this one, and have since gone back. What an inspiration to get out and pedal through the unknown.

CHEERS.
