I decided that a day trip to the North Shore was definitely needed by me! My boyfriend and I made the trek and stopped at a few amazing places along the way. We were traveling up from Duluth and took the scenic route to Two Harbors. Along the scenic route we stopped out at a pier and boy, that lake effect made for a cool walk! It was beautiful... There was a cool fog over the lake and the wave were entering into the bay creating more ice.
From there we kept heading north to Gooseberry where we were able to roam around and take pictures of the beautiful frozen waterfalls and even hike under them! We then went to Split Rock and Tettegouche State Park. We capped off our adventurous day with a slice Heath Cream and French Silk Pie at Betty's Pies! We figured we burned enough calories throughout the day to splurge!
Take an extra day on your trips North and stop to enjoy the beauty around us!
