we are on the Snake River, in Pine County. It flows into Cross Lake, then into the St. Croix on the MN/WI border, about 17 miles east of us.
Thanks Joan. That is pretty country up there. A couple years ago DW and I went through there to Duluth for a long weekend. DW is from Galveston, TX so Lake Superior was big hit with her. A body of water to big to see across.
Yes, it's pretty. And Hwy 61, north of Duluth, is just drop-dead gorgeous! Just like it is in southern, MN.
I haven't been beyond Two Harbors in years. Long, long ago ('76) I went to Grand Marias and took the ferry out to Isle Royale for a week of backpacking. Fantastic scenery on both the drive there and the island.
Isle Royale is one place I haven't been. DH says it's wonderful. We talk about it, but...I'd like to go just to hear the wolves howling!
