Camping Trip - Duluth

After breakfast we stopped in Duluth, Canal Park to be exact. Duluth is a gateway to Lake Superior’s scenic north shore. Lake Superior is the largest of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is bounded to the north by the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of Minnesota, and to the south by the U.S. states of Wisconsin and Michigan. It is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area and is the world's third-largest freshwater lake by volume.

It had been raining on and off all day and the clouds were strikingly beautiful that day. I am a big sucker for clouds. The Matrix in front of us is Jeff and the boys, as Putri and I were in Putri's car with the girls.

We passed Black Bear Resort and Casino, almost stopped for one round of slot but what are we going to do with the kids?


Here's a glimpse of canal park where the famous aerial lift bridge is located. The bridge allows cars over a stretch of Lake Superior to Park Point. This bridge elevates as neeeded to let large freightors into the Duluth Shipping Harbor. These freightors are largely loaded with Minnesota grain and taconite (shown below)


Sky rises of Downtown Duluth. You can see on the background there are houses that are built on the hills. This downtown reminds me of houses built in Seattle, Washington and in Hawaii.



We didn't get a chance to talk the lakewalk due to the on and off rain but I manage to get this shot. The lakewalk is a must walk when in Duluth.

It started raining hard and we sought coverage at Lake Superior Maritime Museum.






The rain finally stopped and we made our way to the lighthouse

Baby ZZ wanted to show me the feather she found. There weren't many seagulls that day due to the weather. On a sunny day this place is flocked with hundreds of them.




This is their first taste of "water playing, rock throwing, rock climbing" series of this camping trip. We'll be doing a lot of these throughout our 4 day trip.




After we had our fun in Duluth, we continue our journey up north.
