I&#8217;m in love with this. 

There’s a forest in Minnesota shaped like…Minnesota. After a redditor noticed this remarkable oddity recently there was some speculation that the forest was Photoshopped, but a direct link to it on Google Maps proves otherwise.

In Minneapolis, a Blueprint for a Bustling Downtown
The building of a nearly $1 billion Minnesota Vikings stadium has become the impetus for resuscitating a barren stretch of this city’s downtown that Gov. Mark Dayton called “a concrete oasis.”
Officials broke ground this month on the city’s largest real estate project in two decades, a $400 million mixed-use development going up next to the new stadium.
The five-block project, called Downtown East, includes plans for two 18-story office towers for Wells Fargo, a six-level parking ramp, about 24,000 square feet of retail space, 193 apartments and a four-acre urban park near the stadium’s northwest corner.
Many cities have tried to generate urban renewal around a big project like a new stadium with mixed success over the years. It is often hard to persuade those who left for the suburbs to return.
Mayor Betsy Hodges is promoting such a turnaround for Minneapolis. “We have an opportunity that few cities get, a big part of our downtown that’s underdeveloped,” she said. “It’s a 21st-century resurgence, as people reimagine downtown living. They rediscover the value of living in a city and what advantages that brings in terms of recreation, employment, opportunities to live without a car and be around other people.
Ultimately, Downtown East is a chance to spur the development that the 31-year-old Metrodome failed to generate, said Michael Langley, chief executive of the Minneapolis St. Paul Regional Economic Development Partnership. “This is an opportunity for a huge do-over,” he said.
The timing of the groundbreaking was exciting, he added. The city will host the 2018 Super Bowl, it was announced last week. “I think we see ourselves on a bigger stage, and we see opportunities that can be created by working together and that was probably missing before.”
