My mother grew up on the Iron Range in northern Minnesota. She would tell stories of deep, long winters there. Unfortunately, I've never been there in deep winter, but winter lasts so long that I got a taste of it in early spring a few years ago. The lakes stay frozen a looonnngg time.
Not far from the Iron Range is the dramatic North Shore of Lake Superior. An iconic view there is Split Rock Lighthouse.
A series of state parks line the coast. This is a view of Shovel Point in Tettegouche State Park. I learned a costly lesson here about securely balancing your tripod on uneven, rocky ground.
