IÔÇÖve lived in IL my whole life and have never seen Lake Superior until this last Saturday. It was a 12 hr / 591 mile ride from Peoria, IL to Silver Bay, MN where I stayed in a motel just for one night. The scenery was spectacular on Rt 61 north of Duluth which included two tunnels through cliff faces, [URL="http://www.photo-wi.com/gallery2/v/Minnesota/Silver_Creek_Cliff_Tunnel/"]hereÔÇÖs one of them[/URL]. Lighthouses and car-sized boulders all along the shore with gigantic rock formations on the other side of the road make this trip a photographerÔÇÖs heaven.
Already made reservations in a hotel in Canal Park in Duluth for next June to stay a week. Great ride!
