Travel Blogs from Ironwood
Picked up chaps at Zip's Saw Elvis LOL On my way to Zip's had a couple of deer come out into the road. Thankfully the 2 bikes in front of me scared them off with their loud pipes. Guess I need some of those when I get back.
BTW doing major construction on the Mackinaw Bridge. Only one lane open.
Only a couple of hours of rain today so it was all good. 490 miles today
HEEEYY! So, we got up nice and early at 5:00am (not cool) and drove a ridiculous 14 hours, and have arrive right at the wisconsin/michigan border pretty much. We are all really exhausted and just ate and are in bed at 8:30 pm. The adventure begins again early tomorrow morning! I am getting more and more anxious to get there, and seeee what all the commotion is about!
... overwhelmed them. And, it put us behind another hour today.
Fourth stop - Sable Falls, also very beautiful.
Fifth stop - Miner's castle -my favorite stop. Overlook at the painted rocks cove. Gorgeous also.
We had 170 miles to go to get to Ironwood, so we had to boogie! Made it to the hotel at around 2000 hours (1900 local with the time change).
Approx. 400 miles ...
... all over town and didn't see much of interest. It looks like Ironwood is a dying town. The most exciting thing we found was the old train station. The Chamber of Commerce uses it for their offices, but that's about it. It's pretty sad. Today we crossed into the Central Time Zone. Just as we had finally gotten used to Eastern Time too. Tomorrow we're off the Duluth, MN. There is a very cool railroad museum there, so we expect to spend some time there before heading farther west. ...
... deer, pristine woods, peace. Untouched by man, no man made structure anywhere from lookout to Lake of the Clouds. Park road took us next to Lake Superior shoreline, got out of the car-really pretty-calm and clear, clean water. Both surprised that each time we saw Superior it was as calm as a mill pond (unlike Lake Michigan which was windy most all the time).
