Thursday, February 1, 2018:  A view from Highway 61, along the north shore of Lake Superior, on this cold winter day.
Morning fog was rising from the lake around this peninsula.
Another stop at the Grand Portage visitor center to learn more Indian history.
Imagine that...living in a birchbark tent.  It was a way of life for many centuries.  Very interesting.
The Dynamic Duo of Mark and Paula Persons found themselves at the border with Canada.
Camera Bug Paula was busy taking photos of High Falls at the border. 
The falls were almost completely frozen over.  Some water was flowing behind the ice and out the bottom.
This is what it looked like earlier in the year before freezing.
Then it was down the shore of Lake Superior on the way to Brainerd.
Yes, Highway 61 along the north shore is a beautiful place summer and winter.
Upon returning to Brainerd, Mark and Paula discovered the Dairy Queen had just opened. 
Yes, it is the first sign of spring when the DQ is serving ice cream, even when there is snow on the ground.

Quote of the day:    Who would have thought that going north in winter makes sense?   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
