Duluth, MN Mini-Vacation Pics

This post is part of a 30 in 30 blog experiment, where I committed to writing 30 posts in 30 days with minimal planning between June 20, 2016 and July 20, 2016.

SoundMan and I are taking a mini-vacation in the "Air-Conditioned City" of Duluth. Located in northern Minnesota on Lake Superior, it is one of my most favorite places in the whole wide world. I loved it so much, I went to college here about a thousand years ago.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous today. Air temp in the sun was around 80 when we arrived, in Duluth, but as we moved farther North to take visit a few state parks, the cool breeze off the lake (which is about 39 degrees this time of year) kicked in and the air temp got a bit more comfortable.

When the sun is hot and the lake is cool, Lake Superior gets misty. There is a set of 174 steps that head down from where I took this picture to the shore. I was too nervous to try and make it back up the steps this year because I'm not very physically fit right now, but the next time we come here, I will be able to do it!

We hung out at Split Rock Lighthouse


There's this really cool typewriter in the lighthouse keeper's cottage. 

Hiked at Gooseberry Falls State Park

We've had so much fun! We've never taken a little mini vacation like this and after this one, I don't know why we haven't ever done this before.

Are you taking any trips this summer?

  1. Awesome! I love the view (and the temperature). We're not going anywhere this summer. Instead we're doing season passes to Universal Studios and a cruise in January. That should suffice, eh?
