Jarad & I checked out the "Witch's Hat Tower" in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. This historic landmark is an old water tower that was built on the highest peak of land in Minneapolis in 1913, and it is awesome!! They open it up to the public once per year, on the Friday following Memorial Day weekend. Its name comes from the unique top, which resembles a traditional witch's hat.
We climbed up this narrow staircase to get to the top, and then we could see both downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul from the observation deck. Great view - although it was a bit hazy so our pics aren't great. Maybe another year it'll be clearer...but for now, it was fun seeing a landmark in our own city!
Hard to tell, but that is downtown Minneapolis behind us.
