Minneapolis to Duluth...

 Since I posted out of order last time...I thought I better put these in...this is the trip from Minneapolis to Duluth...
 Some of these were taken from a moving car...I didn't realize this one was this blurry til now...oh well...
 We stopped at a casino in Hinkley to eat lunch...I think this was the best BLT I have ever had...it was the bread...wild rice bread...wonderful!
 This was a memorial to the big fire in Hinkley that killed over 400 people in the 1800's...a grass fire...
 Something about the water towers in this part of the country...I love them...we don't have these in my neck of the woods...so I took pictures of them all!
 Getting closer...
 Less Fall color this far north...



 Don's cousins helped me clean off and around my Grandparents grave and marker...this is Terry and Lulu...they drove us around the first day and took us out to dinner...
 Canadian geese...boy are they messy!!
 Don and Terry...first cousins...their Dad's were brothers...
 A small lake near my Grandparents grave...
 I love all the leaves and Fall color...
 This is a look out tower on Sky line drive...it's been there as long as I can remember...I climbed it as a young girl ...and the last time I was in Duluth...they have a new look out area now...
 It's so pretty up there at Skyline Park...it is at the top of Duluth...
Here's the view from the new look out...Lake Superior starts after the sand strand straight ahead...
I hope you are enjoying my vacation with me...I need to catch up on some of the days...I have taken so many pictures that it's hard to chose what to post...well...it's late and I'm off to bed...more to see tomorrow...I can't wait!!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Wow it must have been a wonderful reunion, remembrance of good old days and revisiting lovely places. Don't worry about the blurred photos it is understandable with moving cars, at least we can still see those patterns of the woods. thanks.
