Addendum to Previous Post

Two pictures that I was going to post with my last entry, but nevertheless forgot to, are aerial shots of Grand Forks from the lovely photo database.

The first picture provides you with a nice overview of the city of Grand Forks. Only about half of the entire city can be seen, however. Most of the new, suburban-style development - including the Columbia Mall and Alerus Center - is in the southern part of the city, just out of the range of this photograph. The Red River and a tiny bit of East Grand Forks can be seen, though, along with all of the UND campus. The Ralph Engalstad Arena, where UND's hockey, basketball, tennis, and soccer teams play, is very recognizable is this photo - it's the large building between the two lines of clouds surrounded by what appears to be two large, empty city blocks.

The other aerial photo from Grand Forks shows a closer view of UND. That complex of buildings directly above the cloud line contains the second walkway that is pictured in my previous entry. Some of the rest of the UND campus, meanwhile, can be seen in the lower right corner of the picture, where numerous brown colored buildings are clumped together. Also easily recognizable is the power plant UND operates to produce all of the campus's electricity, as well as the extensive rail yard that abuts the university.

Thanks to Ryan Butterworth, evidently an aviation student at UND, for taking the pictures and providing them to

Furthermore, tune into the blog tomorrow night, as I plan on posting my annual roundup of the best Super Bowl commercials.
