Duluth to Detroit Lakes,MN...

 We left Duluth and headed across Northern Minnesota towards Fargo, North Dakota...
 We crossed the Mississippi near its start...not real impressive here...just a meandering river...but look how low the water level is...the drought affected this area...
 We drove past so many family farms...
 Our car stopped abruptly at the sight of a quilt shop...sadly...no pictures were allowed...but they had more charm squares than I have ever seen in one place!! I had to buy some!!  
 Even though most of the Fall color had fallen from the trees...there still was a lot to see...
 I am so impressed with the beauty of this part of the country....

 We stopped to look around Lake Leech...the water was pretty rough...
 I could live right there...sigh...
 And look who flew right in front of the car!! Yes...a bald eagle...we were amazed...pulled the car off to the side...and found him flying about...looking for lunch I suppose...
 What a beauty posing there for us...he looks small in the picture...but he was huge! 
I can't tell you how much joy I have taking this journey with my dear husband...it is a trip I will remember forever...we have taken in so much beauty on this trip...we took the road less traveled and what a wonderful adventure we have had...its not done yet...still a week to go! 
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Ahhh...now THOSE sights are familiar ones to me....So very glad you're enjoying them. Wonderful captures of the eagle. We see them often, but I find them so hard to capture in a photo....Wishing you more wonder on your journey....Smiles & Hugs from Wisconsin ~ Robin

What a wonderful trip! The eagle is so beautiful!!! We saw one at Big Bear Lake last weekend swoop down right in front of us and get dinner out of the lake, then fly off with it. TWICE!! So amazing!

Great photos and the shots of the Bald Eagle are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Are you going to show us the FQs you bought as well?

Taking the road less travelled is the best thing to do to see the U.S.A. because you did this you and your husband got to see an eagle close-up. How nice!

Thanks for sharing your trip with us - I went back and looked at the other posts about it also. I bet seeing the bald eagle was a real treat. I have never been to that part of our country so enjoyed the pictures.
Thank for stopping by.
