I just posted a page on SuperiorTrails with pictures and a video of our catching Steam Locomotive 261 on its arrival in Duluth last Saturday.

Jo and I spent most of the day trying to find a good spot to catch photos as the train came into town . . . and almost missed it because we had the train following a different set of tracks than I had expected. After discovering that we were "camped" in the wrong place (for over 2 hours), we rushed to downtown Duluth and managed to catch a video and photos just before it got to the Depot. Plus got some good shots after it arrived.

See the page and pictures/videos here: http://www.superiortrails.com/261.html

Just returned from the UP after watching the UP200 Sled Dog Race. Unlike last year there was plenty of snow and in fact overnight Friday a little too much snow. The mushers and their dog teams had to plow through 6 - 12 inches of fresh snow in some places. Ray Anderson of Ray, Minnesota won the race for the fourth consecutive time. http://www.superiortrails.com/marquette-up200-dogsled.html

Where are visitor centers on the scenic Lake Superior Circle Drive?

Brian who is traveling counter-clockwise from Sault Ste. Marie asked me this recently. Here's my reply:

The Sault Ste Marie Ontario visitor center is just a few blocks from when you cross the bridge. Canada Customs is also there. Watch signs carefully as you cross and you should find it. Make effort to find it, especially if you are staying in Canada for a few days as they sometimes have coupons for places to stay and visitor attractions. Also pick up a good road map and brochures for other things of interest.

When you come into Minnesota at Grand Portage, the Minnesota Visitor Center is now part of the Visitor Center at Grand Portage State Park on your right hand side about a half mile from the border. Again watch for signs and you shouldn't miss it. Before you get there stop at the Grand Portage State Park to see the waterfalls. Usually quite impressive.Your park sticker is good for the day for all state parks along the North Shore - many of them worth a stop for hiking and scenery.

When you cross the bridge from Duluth to Superior, WI you go all the way through the city of Superior and east on Hwy 2 a few miles beyond the city limits. The Wisconsin Welcome Center is on your right hand side and hard to miss.  When you cross from Hurley, WI to Ironwood, Michigan the Michigan Visitor Center is on your right hand side as you come into Ironwood. Watch carefully as you cross the state line as this one is a bit easier to miss.

One evening we camped on the western shore of the Keweenaw Peninsula and caught a nice sunset. Then early the next morning, I got up early enough to see this pretty sunrise.

This June we took a trip around the Ontario side of Lake Superior and caught some fantastic waterfall displays along the Minnesota North Shore and Ontario's portion of the North Shore. We posted them on our companion ScenicPathways website:
