Moonlight Silhouettes

Warm summer nights on Lake Superior are a true joy, but, when there is a full moon rising out of Lake Superior, it becomes a memory.

Morning Lights

Dawn on the shores of Lake Superior is a treat anytime, but, once in awhile, it is stunning.

Duluth Canal and Lift Bridge History

I took some time during the past few weeks to put together this video on the history of the Lift Bridge and Canal.  We have such a rich nautical history around the "Head of the Lakes" that I thought a video would be worthwhile.  Sorry that it so long (53 minutes), but, there is a lot to tell.

Superior Blizzard

The last day of February 2012 brought in a powerful blizzard to the Head of the Lakes.  60MPH northeast winds, and a foot of snow closed schools and snarled traffic. 
There was beauty on the Lake Superior shoreline though. With the wind, ice pellets, sea spray, and roar of the waves, the power of the big lake was an awesome sight. Much different then the peaceful afternoon yesterday on the Split Rock Lighthouse shoreline.
Enjoy the storm pictures, I have to go shovel now!
