Rain Drops & Daisies

While the rain during the past few weeks may seem like a bummer to many folks, if you take time to look a bit closer, it doesn't seem all that bad after all.

This daisy caught my attention as I walked through my back yard today.

Baby Loons hatched today!

I wasn't sure if the local loons were going to nest this year, but, sure enough, they went floating by with their day old chicks today on Caribou Lake.

Morning Sunrise (Timelapse)



With rain moving in from the west, the saturated air over Lake Superior generated some particularly beautiful light this morning.

Locomotive 28 on a roll!



Making it's first trip to Two Harbors today, Steam Locomotive 28 is a good reminder of the importance that railroads played in the region.

Today, I followed the train during it's 20 mile trip and enjoyed the sights and sounds of a bygone era.

Locomotive 28 was restored over the past 6 years with thousands of dollars and countless hours of work from the North Shore Scenic Railroad.

Construction Update!

FYI,

We should be back to normal now on the Canal and Bridge cams.  You may hear work going on still in the background but the views should be clear.  I placed the cams back in the old location the best I could.

Thanks for you patience during the work.

Roof work finishing next week!

It appears that the major roof work at the visitor center will be complete next week and the rails and fence will be coming down. This has affected the Canalcam and Bridgecam.

As soon as the fence is clear I will readjust the cameras and we should be good to go!

This too shall pass!

Canal and Bridge Cam

Unfortunately, the roof work on the visitor center has progressed into the area where the cameras are located. Don't plan on a view for a few day - my hope is that the workers don't break anything.
