Driving down Highway 61 while listening to Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited seems out of place. The real highway is open and gorgeous, winding its way along the shore of Lake Superior from Duluth to the Canadian border. Dylan's 61 is far more threatening and obtuse.
Today was rainy and cold, the temperature hovering around the 45 degree mark throughout the day. It feels more like March than mid-June. The rivers that feed into Lake Superior are all swollen and rushed. It appears that any more rainfall will cause the rivers to overtake the highway, washing it away in many places.
The Grand Portage area is awesome, definitely worth the drive up there. The image above is from one of the many scenic overlooks in that area.
Places visited: Two Harbors, Silver Bay, Lutsen, Grand Marais and Grand Portage, MN. Grand Portage National Monument. Cascade River and Tettegouche State Park.
