Driving along the North Shore

Tuesday and Wednesday we just took it easy, just doing some shopping in Duluth and Two Harbors. Also more rain. Had another thunder/lightning show one night. At first, since we have been traveling, we enjoyed this as we don't get see much lightning or rain for that matter, in SO CAL. However, with all the storms we have been having, and it's summer!!!, I said enough already.

Thursday looked nice and so we decided to take advantage and go for a drive north. We stopped at Gooseberry Falls State Park, which is the most popular state park in Minnesota. There are five waterfalls found in the park. We walked down to a few of them to check them out.

We also stopped at Silver Bay Marina to eat the lunch that we brought with us. Joe's appetite has still not come back and so no going out to lunch or dinner yet. The Marina is next to Northshore Mining, a taconite processing factility. It produces and ships taconite pellets to steel producers throughout the country. Big mining area. 3M is in Two Harbors and we may take a tour there this week.
