Off to the North Shore
A mini-trip within a bigger trip. With a free car and free weekend, I drove north from Minneapolis to visit the north shore of Lake Superior.
Frank Lloyd Wright gas station #
Another Atlas Obscura tip on the way to the North Shore. The only gas station by Frank Lloyd Wright, though I’m tipped off that there’s a model of one in a museum in New York.
Jay Cooke State Park #
Jay Cooke park stradles the St Louis river leading towards Duluth and Lake Superior. Bits of the shore were starting to ice up, but were a far way from being stable enough to stand on.
I walked for a couple hours along the riverbanks until hunger got the better of me and I moved on to Duluth and a tasty lunch in a diner.
Park Point #
Nature reserve / beach / sanddune. Very cold and windy.
Two Harbors #
A small sleepy town where I spent the night. Really nice local brewery.
