... was used in many bridges etc and nearly all the skyscrapers in New York.
There is also an underground physics lab here which does experiments here. It was about detecting nuetrinos and meurons.
In the afternoon we visited the International Wolf Centre. This is a non-profit organisation which aims to educate the public about wolves and to take the fear away about them. There are 4 wolves and you can watch then ...
... Bear Centre. After seeing so many bears in the wild and basically ******** myself about them and the danger they present, it was good to learn some more facts about these seemingly misunderstood creatures.

Our destination being the town of Ely, which sits on the edge of an area called Boundary Waters, a series of lakes that are great for canoeing and spotting wildlife as well as serving as the border between the US and Canada.
It was in the high 50's when we arrived and raining, so no outdoor activities for us today. Headed off to the local steakhouse for some cow.

All and all, it was a great eye-opening experience for Glenn, Tara, and Dave. The weather held out nicely considering the record setting rain in the area just before. Carol planned nice meals and Karl provided the overall experience and fishing opportunities. It was a wonderful chance for us to see and do something unlike anything we've done before!
We caught TONS of giant smallmouth bass! The weather was decent, except for a couple of super windy days. We managed to avoid any bears or scary wildlife...just lots of chipmunks! As usual, the scenery was great. There's just something so cool about nature that's virtually untouched by man.
