North 61, Minnesota

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Drives

Minnesota State Highway 61 is a wonderful drive along lake Superior. This is of course the gateway highway north to the ever incredible Boundary Waters and other incredible parks. I hiked the Border Route Trail a few years ago and completely fell in love with the area, so much so that I made my wife visit this year. While she mostly enjoyed it the mosquito’s started to drain her, both physically and mentally. One day she had even awoken with a nice lump over her right eye proclaiming “Oh my god, I got bit in the eye.” I will never be living that one down, not at least anytime soon.
