|Gooseberry Falls 2012|
In one of my eloquent moments on Facebook, I posted this: "Sometimes I take for granted that there's an amazing body of water only 2 1/2 hours away. It makes you wonder what other things go unnoticed that are near or within reach of us that we can call 'Superior.'"
Duluth and Lake Superior are great places for food, nature, art and just hanging out - all the things that I love. Along the Lakewalk, which is several miles of a shoreline walking/biking path, you can see metal sculptures, war memorials, and a huge mosaic tile mural.
The weather for that week was a bit warmer than usual. We took a glorious bike ride - seven miles one way - which, like the former train tracks, passed through the flatter parts of the city, the back yards of the Lester River, and the green spaces between the freeway and the lake. Lots of places to rest along the way. It was sunny and warm, but the wind coming off of the lake made it perfect for biking. (Yes, my bike is the one with the puffy seat cover!)
More to come!
