Twins Baseball Trip - July 28-August 2, 2010

These pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S9000 digital camera on a trip to see a game at the the new Target Field in Minneapolis and a couple minor league games in the Upper Midwest, from July 28 through August 2, 2010. 3 baseball games and 1350 miles over 4 days. Images are shown at a resolution of 640x480, but many are available cropped from the originals or in half of original size by clicking on the links after the captions.

Weather delays in Fort Myers and Orlando made arrival into Milwaukee later than expected, but the flight made it, Darren was at the airport waiting, and the trip began.

We left Milwaukee in the morning, heading for Burlington, Iowa. Along the way, we had a chance to look around Moline and Rock Island, Illinois, at lunch time [17 Pictures]. After lunch, we passed through Galesburg, Illinois, [3 Pictures] and across the Mississippi River [4 Pictures] to Burlington, Iowa. After checking into the hotel, we made a quick visit to see the riverfront in Burlington [23 Pictures], where the river was above flood stage after recent heavy rains. Finally, we went to Community Field, where we saw the Burlington Bees host the Beloit Snappers in a Midwest League game [20 Pictures]. [74 Pictures from the roads].

This was the longest travel day, and with a hard deadline to get to the Twins game. We started in Burlington and drove up through eastern Iowa then up into Minnesota. A couple of places earned some pictures: Center Point, Iowa, where we met Luis for lunch [2 Pictures], Shell Rock, Iowa [2 Pictures], Osage, Iowa [5 Pictures], St. Ansgar, Iowa [3 Pictures], and Lyle, Minnesota [4 Pictures]. After checking into the hotel near Bloomington, it was up into downtown Minneapolis for my first game at Target Field [21 Pictures]. [44 Pictures from the roads].

This was Twins backup day in case of rainout, so there was no baseball on the schedule. We had time in the morning to take our time getting ready, then stopped for lunch at the Mall of America. From there, it was on across Wisconsin to Green Bay. We stopped to check out Lambeau Field [13 Pictures] before checking into the hotel and getting dinner. [43 Pictures from the roads].

Sunday, August 1, 2010

Not as much travel planned on this day, starting in Green Bay, with an afternoon baseball game in Appleton, then on to Milwaukee for the night. In the morning, we drove up through Green Bay [1 Picture] and out to Sturgeon Bay [9 Pictures] and Algoma [10 Pictures]. We came back through Green Bay [2 Pictures] and on to Appleton for a Wisconsin Timber Rattlers game [30 Pictures]. After the game, it was on to Milwaukee, passing a bit of the big air show in Oshkosh on US 41 [2 Pictures]. In Milwaukee, we just checked into the hotel, got some dinner at a Perkins that was overwhelmed by even a small number of customers, and then prepared for the early morning trip to the airport.

Monday, August 2, 2010

No pictures from this travel day. It was a very early morning to get to the airport for a 6:10 AM flight. But no problems on the flights to BWI and on to RSW.
