Boy did I have a fun weekend! You can see just HOW fun in the next few slides.
First off say goodbye to old Bertha Cooker. Yep. The old lady settled into the arms of a really great farming family up North. I told my girlfriend over coffee, who was wondering how the moving was going, that if you can imagine moving a dead cow THAT is just exactly how much this beast weighed. No kidding. I know... I helped. Sheesh Louise. Crazy thing.
So what do a bunch of crazy knuckle-headed Duluthians do after loading 'Ol Bertha up? Take a drive up the shore. Only next time, remember to fill up the tank because Lutsen is like an hour away and even though my little car is a miracle that doesn't mean driving on the red hazard light on an empty tank for thirty miles is a really good idea. Adventures of Emme! I lived.
Destination: Lutsen Mountains for some hair raising gondola rides... =)
But what a beautiful sight right? Yep this is the entrance to Silver Creek Cliff. The Scenic North Shore Highway, circling the shore of Lake Superior is one of the most beautiful places in northern Minnesota. When I was a little girl they did all the blasting to create this. As you can see, the North Shore is full of bedrock, cliffs, crags, and rocky shore. Probably what you can compare to seeing pictures of eastern Canada's shores in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Beautiful. Takes my breath away every time!
