Minnesota::Endless Bridge

Minnesota is a beautiful city-especially when it isn't covered in snow! The best part about visiting a new place is exploring...and that is pretty hard to do in snow shoes.

We woke up bright and early and went to the Endless Bridge. Fortunately, no one else was crazy enough to go look at architecture at 9am so I was able to get some nice shots without tourists.

If you're not familiar with it, the Endless Bridge is located in the Guthrie Theater in downtown Minneapolis. Architect Jean Nouvel designed the place to function as an observatory to the Mississippi River. It is one of the largest cantilevers of the world, measuring at an amazing 30 feet wide by 178 feet long!

The interior glows with a gorgeous blue hue and pays homage to the history of the theater and location through shadowed figures reflective imagery.

It is free to the public so I definitely recommend going if you have the chance!
