Heading northbound on 35W, the drive into downtown Minneapolis reminds me a lot of the Emerald City. From the outer ring suburbs at night, you see an equivalent yellow brick road with street lights dotting a winding road and leading to a skyline that appears to rise on a hill. From the promise it held as an aspiring college freshman to today as an adult returning to work downtown, I never grow tired of seeing this view.
P.S. The Target semi truck was completely coincidental.
