Arrowwood Lodge At Brainerd Lakes
Travel Blogs from Baxter
This was almost a 500 mile "Day Trip" but it was a beautiful drive, especially since they had a good snow fall last night!! Plus we needed a distraction today after the kids left!!
... the great Mexican food last night? I was remembering about 2am this morning :-(
Forgot to tell you yesterday that was racing past a long freight train which always puts a grin on my face...black and white TV, the gang rode their horses alongside the train and jumped on...I guess I still am a 60 something Kid (or in my second childhood already).
... The route follows the river and is very twist not an A to B Interstate highway and it took me a 1/2 day to get used to the slower pace.
Stopping off in Bemindji I was surprised to find Steam Punk style sculptures. I originally went there to shot the Paul Bunyan and Babe statues. I also got a couple of fabulous shots of a bird using telephoto.
The Mississippi river grows wide over a shot distance, you can see from my shots today comparing it ...
We began the day touring the National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown, ND, which actually was not much of a tour at all. There was a small old frontier town, a few buffalo statues, a gift shop and a small herd of buffalo, which included an albino buffalo. Fortunately, it was free. Nonetheless, I took a photo of John with one of the statues.
We drove on to Minnesota and I began searching the Trailer Life Campground Guide for a RV ...
Last night we stayed at the Porcupine Wilderness State Park in Ontonagon, MI. Had a site right on Lake Superior. Arrived just before it stormed. Lots of people camping in tents and there we were sitting in our motor home nice and dry watching a movie and eating popcorn! Too bad for the rain, we were hoping to see the Northern Lights.
