The Grass is Always Greener on Michigan Avenue

I was looking through some old photographs recently, and came across some CrappyCameraPhone™ shots of the opening of the Columbia Sportswear store (830 North Michigan Avenue) that I didn't publish back when they were timely or relevant.

So, here they are -- just four months late. The reason they're interesting, is because for the event, Columbia put down artificial grass on the sidewalk, with a miniature hiking trail leading to the front doors of its store. Clever.
