The Minnesota State Capital is located in Minnesota’s capital city – St. Paul. I went to St. Paul to see the Cathedral but it wound up closing early on the day I was there so I decided to walk around (in the rain) and take some more pictures of other buildings in the area. Above the southern entrance to the building is a sculpture called ‘The Progress of the State’. According to Wikipedia the four horses represent the power of nature: earth, wind, fire and water. The women leading the horses symbolize civilization while the man on the chariot represents prosperity.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go into this building either because it to was closed but next time I’ll try to take a tour since it seems like there is an opportunity to head up to the roof which would allow me to photograph the horses a little closer and also take some pictures of St. Paul from above.
