I just got back from the pretty and mystical north shore. I was there shooting for The Magazine and enjoyed my little time away from city living. I've been to the Duluth area a handful of times, but this time I stayed up in Grand Marais, nearer the Minnesota-Canadian border.
While I can't share the photos I took for work until this spring, I snapped a few personally and instagrammed a bit. I loved how beautiful the light was!
This was my third business trip for work. I drove the long winding, scenic highway 61 up past Duluth to the tiny town of Grand Marais. That red truck and blue skies are what I woke up to. I thought I was in Scandinavia.
I started with breakfast, eggs benedict over crab at the darling Pie Place Cafe overlooking Lake Superior.
After a long night of driving, skipping dinner and stopping at a state park Friday I was ready for a good breakfast!
And it's a good thing I ate because I ended up following the wrong trail for two miles on a hike and had to back track all to hike another two miles. It occurred to me after hopping over rushing waters with no bridges or signs that I was probably on the wrong path, haha. Needless to say, my legs still hurt!
I ran around the rest of the day to a few state parks, scenic drives and snapped as much as I could before the sun went down. Back at the lodge I eat dinner and met some new friends. The next morning, Sunday, my last day, we headed to breakfast at the breathtakingly stunning Naniboujou Lodge.
Finally I headed back home where I collapsed and am still in awe of this red truck...
