2nd (West) at M, Looking West-Southwest (see more)

I'm now back from a much-needed respite in north-central and northeast Wyoming, where the buffalo roam, where the deer and the antelope play (sometimes in your yard), and where the skies are (mostly) not cloudy all day.
While I'm miffed that all work in Near Southeast did not grind to a halt while I was gone, I will still pass along these quick tidbits of news, for those who weren't doing their own newsgathering over the past 10 days.
* CRANES A'PLENTY: The residential projects at 801 New Jersey and 1111 New Jersey have now joined the lineup of sites where tower cranes are in place. This of course means that vertical construction at these locations won't be too far off, should everything go according to plan. And there's probably a crane coming before long at 909 Half as well. (Speaking of cranes, they are often lightning rods--literally, as the Dock 79 crane found out last week.)
* ROADS A'CLOSING: On Wednesday, June 24, Virginia Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Streets SE was closed and fenced, as part of initial Virginia Avenue Tunnel work. And a missive from CSX a few days ago says that the expectation is that Virginia will close between 4th and 5th "on or about" Wednesday, July 1. (But the cross streets will remain open.) Drivers will need to use K Street over to 5th to then continue north under the freeway, or to continue east on Virginia Avenue until that portion of road is closed as well.
* PIZZA PIZZA: There's still the pesky detail of actual construction, but at last a building permit has been approved for Nicoletta, the pizza/pasta carryout kiosk long planned by Osteria Morini's Chef Michael White in one of the small retail bays beneath the Yards Park overlook, on the Riverwalk.
* BARDO DELAYED: The plans for an outdoor park and "brew garden" on the west end of the Florida Rock site are "now looking like a fall opening," according to WBJ--"if we're lucky." "Red tape" is the reason given. WBJ also notes that the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that was looking for $200,000 to help fund the venture closed with $4,330 in contributions.
There's probably more to come, but that's good enough for now.

Welcome back! Speaking of cranes...the no parking signs are being posted on Half St today for tmrw and Wednesday. Here comes another one. Or, I guess in this case, two?

I recognize Devil's Tower, but where was the other photo taken?


JD says: (6/30/15 9:57 AM)
That first photo is on US 14 at Sand Turn in the Big Horn Mountains, looking down on Dayton and Ranchester, Wyo., between Sheridan and the Montana border:

My mother grew up around Sheridan, as did her mother and her mother's father.

My grandfather was from eastern Wyoming, with both sides of his family being among the original settlers of the Hulett area near Devil's Tower. We actually still own about 120 acres of land that my great-great uncle made the original homestead claim on in the early 1900s.

So, while I did not grow up out there, I spent a lot of summers out there when I was little and definitely consider it my Ancestral Homeland. :)

Very cool! Thanks for sharing!

Did anyone else see this balloon last night above 100 Capitol Yards and McDonalds right around sunset (9 - 9:15 PM)? Strange...

JD says: (6/30/15 12:10 PM)
I don't know, but my eyes are burning from all them hashtags in the original inquiry.



202_cyclist says: (6/30/15 12:16 PM)
According to Prince of Petworth, this is the company whose balloon escaped: link . I saw this truck with the balloon tethered next to the Hampton Inn construction site earlier this spring.


BLT says: (6/30/15 1:27 PM)
I originally thought McDonalds was running some sort off egg sammy promotion. That balloon was sorta egg-shaped with a red cape. I guess I was a little off. :-/
