Laurentian Divide Lookout, Gunflint Trail, Cook County, Minnesota

Back from travelin' in the north country fair, where the winds hit heavy on the borderline. In spite of Dylan’s foreboding lyric, the weather there was glorious, perfect for hiking on the myriad trails and byways in Minnesota’s Arrowhead region:

While we didn't encounter any wildlife bigger than the Blue and Gray Jays that came to our cabin for handouts, there were plenty of moose tracks, as well as the “calling cards” left on the side of the trash bins by the neighborhood bears:

There were still a few fishermen plying their craft on the chilly waters:

And forests full of fungi:

We did manage to catch a little local nightlife at the Trail Center:

And I even caught a glimpse of the rare Yeti “Jono” in his native habitat:

No birds in his beard, however!

Fun to put a face on the oft-seen 'Jono' commenter!

He looks as idiotic as he sounds. Despite that a good time was had by all.

Jono~ I owe you for dinner, $30 wasn't enough. You'll have to collect it here though!

Blogger Jono said...

I'll be sure to come down and collect it with interest. Big time! I might want to fondle your guitars as partial payment or something equally outrageous. Maybe look at some of your state fair or Wanda Gag photos. That would be more than adequate for any outstanding monetary debt. Deal?

We'll leave a light on for ya…

Jono! In front of the camera, instead of behind it! Nice pictures.
