Shovel Point on Point

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.

Split Rock From Afar

 

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.
