26 July 2015 The Other Shore

Our journey started today on the Wisconsin side. The beach was much quieter. Maybe it because it was Sunday morning. Maybe it was because it was the Wisconsin side. The water was just as clear and the caches were fun.

The 1000 foot Burns Harbor has worked the Great Lakes for over 30 years after being commissioned by Bethlehem Steel. This afternoon she sat docked along the shore.

We had seen the lighthouse from Minnesota and Wisconson earlier in the day Now it was time to take a walk across the rocks to see it up close.

We were a little distracted by the rocks on the way out and back. They were more interesting than the usual breakwall material.

Superior is a town with history. Besides some great older signs, there are older buildings calling back a time when steel making was a huge piece of the US economy and the region's mining and shipping was a big part of that industry. We didn't have a long time to spend, but it would be a great place to return and capture in images.

We returned to Duluth to visit Enger Park. The tower is the main attraction at the park, but the park also includes nice floral areas, a Japanese Garden, and some great views for watching life on the water.
