The downtown skyline can be seen after the first snow at the Minneapolis homeless encampment near Hiawatha and Cedar avenues.

Hunched over a small metal bowl of burning candle wax, 47-year-old John Dale took stock of the items he's crammed into his small tent at the homeless encampment in south Minneapolis.

Most of it, even the chips of scented wax, has come from dumpsters. That's where he's been searching for anything - tarps, blankets, cardboard - that might better fortify his home against the oncoming Minnesota winter.
