I did this beautiful ride after a canoe trip north of Ely. Even though it was nine years ago, I still remember the beauty. It is definitely on my bucket list to go back.

This drive provides amazing views of Lake Superior, occasionally some white tail deer sightings, a couple tunnels, and a multitude of spots to stop and hike, sightsee, or snap pictures. It's gorgeous all year round.

I love this road. Make sure to stop by Bettie's pies and eat pies on your drive!

A gorgeous, relaxing drive. :)

My favorite route in MN... If it's a clear day!!!

My favorite road in the US. I get a smile on my face as soon as I see that blue sign with a 61 on it! Lake Superior is a sparkling jewel on your right as you wind from Duluth to the Canadian border. Many wonderful trails to hike along the way. This is heaven on earth for me. We try to get back at least once a year.
