Shovel Point, MN – July 24th 2016. An ideal Minnesota summer view. The day started with bacon, OJ, punk rock and a 9-mile run around a soggy forest loop up in Grand Marais. After a few chilly dips in the lake, the objective was to venture down to Tettegouche for a view of that ol’ Shovel Point.
Morning in Grand Marais, MN. Great view of the Sawtooth range in the distance. See where the name comes from?
With the winter ice gone, waves crash into Minnesota Point. It was windy and chilly but, quite enjoyable to be here. During the summer this place becomes a lovely beach for Duluth residents and tourists alike.
Photo of the Lake Superior shoreline covered with a thick blanket of mist. The Lafayette Bluff Tunnel can be seen in the distance.
A misty morning shot of Palisade Head from my trip in late June. The landscape felt quite eerie before the sun broke on through. Every morning the fog was heavy like this until about 11 o’clock.

The Minnesota shoreline of Lake Superior has a handful of lighthouses but, few are as impressive as Split Rock Lighthouse. Here’s a photo I shot of Split Rock Lighthouse using my telephoto lens. This lighthouse (complete with fog horn) would’ve been the only warning a ship would receive of the incoming shoreline before GPS came about.
