Wednesday, January 31, 2018:  Mark and Paula headed north from Grand Marais, MN, along the north shore of Lake Superior.
Wildlife, like this deer, are common in that area.
The Dynamic Duo went on a one-mile snow covered walking trail in Judge Magney State Park.
The object was to see a water fall, which was mostly frozen over because of very cold temperatures.
The path was steep.  Paula found going down a hill was easier on her back side.  Funny how that worked out!
More ice along the shore.
There were these frozen boat houses waiting for spring to arrive.
Paula and Mark stopped in at the Grand Portage National Monument, just six miles from the Canadian border.
it is not really a monument, but instead it is a history center telling of the fur trade back in the 1800s.  
It was a thriving business trapping and sending furs back to Europe when beaver skin hats were all the rage.
More ice along Lake Superior.
The beauty and grandeur were outstanding at times.
Waves crashed across the shore with some of the water turning to ice instantly.

Snowmobiles headed out of Skyport Lodge for a run that night. 
The Raven Rock Grill at Skyport featured music by local musicians. 
Friends Nancy and Harold Conrad "Connie" Bramstedt joined Mark and Paula for dinner there. 
It was Connie's birthday, but he wouldn't say how many.  

Quote of the day:    Lots to see and do along Lake Superior.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
