Seven ULLRs came prepared for probable rain with umbrellas and rain jackets to tour the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden on July 18, and it didn’t take long for the group to pop their umbrellas and don their jackets.  Thankfully, the rain did not last long, and the group meandered among new and long-standing amazing sculptures.  
Since we are known as a ski club, one of the first photo ops was at the Back of Snowman sculpture, soon followed by a group photo at the iconic Spoon and Cherry with the city skyline in the distance.  Phone cameras clicked when we got to the new Hahn/Cock which is easily seen due to its large size and bright blue hue.  Horsewoman Lorna T. posed at Woodrow, made of bronze designed to look like wood branches put together in the shape of a horse.
Before lunch at Esker Grove in the Walker Art Center, we crossed the Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge where we overlooked road construction on the I-94 Lowry Tunnel and saw a couple of semi -trucks that disregarded Do Not Enter signs for large trucks.
A stroll through Loring Park took us past large canopy trees, green lakes, flowers, and the Berger Dandelion Fountain where we successfully resisted temptation to take off our shoes and wade in the water.
In spite of a bit of rain, a cloudy sky, hot temps, and high humidity, host Nancy S. and the other ULLRs highly recommend taking time to see the new sculptures and changes at the Sculpture Garden.
