]The wife was gone so I took off. I rode from the yard headed for some of the natural sites. First stop Seven Bridges on the east end of Duluth MN. It's a park of river gullies thu bedrock with a elevation drop of several hundred feet. Lots of waterfalls and big white Pines make it a wonderful place to visit. Second was the North Shore of Lake Superior. Lots of neat things to see along the shore as I traveled along Sceinic Hwy 61. Several marinas and sone comercial iron ore docks are quite interesting. I saw a couple Ocean going ships pass by on their way to Duluth, probably to get grain. I climbed to a couple hundred feet straight above the water at Palisade Head. Several mountain climbers were testing their skills. I picked blueberrys, ate them and watched. At Ilgin City , pop. 8, I went inland past the little town of Finland and just before Isabella I took Snake Trail. It's a tote road. I explored for fouty miles and never saw a single person. Several lakes and lots of wolf crap. I expected to see some moose, but didn't. I kept the back road trip going by traveling accross small roads and came back home from the north a big circle. I spent 10 hours to go 209 miles. Not fast but quite a gas. I burned about two and a half gals.
