Traveling North

[Looking back from where we came.]

Despite fear of snow mid-week, winter is losing its grip up here in the north-land. One the first day of our spring break, the Dude and I stopped off for a hike at Gooseberry Falls, north of Duluth. We had been here earlier, with the Rock World trip, and subsequent family adventure. Despite the treacherous footing, we followed the Gooseberry River from the falls down to Agate Beach where the river empties into Lake Superior, snapping a few pictures along the way.

We arrived at Blue Fin with time for a swim in the nicely heated outdoor pool before dinner. Nothing helps you laugh at winter like spending time outside in a swim suit.

Don’t tell Shana but we are sitting in our room watching the Disney Channel – we do have the shades open to the stunning view of the Lake and you can’t help but hear the waves crash – even above Disney.
