North Shore Trip

 I can't believe that I have never been to the North Shore of Minnesota until now.  My parents never took us up north this far that I can remember and I'm sure the lack of time and money were the reasons why.  We were clearly denied to opportunity to see God's beauty and creation.  The first stop we made was at the Sandstone Quarry.  On the side of the cliffs were the snow falls and because it's just starting to thaw out up here, there were small streams of water trickling down.  So very cool and peaceful and serene.  Until a big snow chunk fell off as we were walking away.  That was a cool sound and I was glad we decided to leave at that time.
The Duluth Harbor was so awesome to see and I was in such awe that once again a dream of mine had been realized that I shed a couple tears.  For those of you that don't know me, I don't cry so easy, but just the reality of FINALLY going to Duluth, MN was so overwhelming and emotional for me.  It was just AWESOME.  My niece Megan is thinking about going to college here, I sure hope she does so I can visit often.  It's beautiful up here and she would love it. 

Gooseberry Falls was simply amazing.  And the ice chunks in the river were equally cool.  Again, God's beauty at it's best.
This is Lake Superior from the hotel room.  How cool to have a balcony overlooking the lake.  I can't wait to take my kids here and share all this with them.  I hope my love for these great sites will rub off on them and they can enjoy these beauties from now on and that they can pass this love on down to their children.  I want my kids to experience all that the North Shore has to offer.
I can't wait to go to Grand Marais today and explore more of this great beauty.  This certainly gives me a better appreciation of this great State of Minnesota and all its beauty it has to offer.
I'll post more tomorrow.
Until then....Love, TT
