Recently, my family took our summer vacation to Northern Minnesota. As part of our “get to know our state” year, we visited a few places we normally wouldn’t go.
Our first stop was Duluth and the surrounding State Parks of Jay Cooke and Gooseberry Falls.
The beautiful Gooseberry Falls. As you can see, you can get right up close to it!
Here is the Swinging Bridge at Jay Cooke Park.
In the City of Duluth we saw Glensheen Mansion. This beautiful historic manor is on Lake Superior and has all its original furnishings. They offer multiple tours each day. Have you gotten the chance to explore local historic homes in your area?
Here are some shots of the beautiful interior.
The grounds were gorgeous too.
Unfortunately, much of the grounds still need to be restored. Someday.
As we progressed along on our trip we also got to see Leif Erickson Park on the shores of Lake Superior. There they have a beautiful rose garden. Check out my next post to see more shots!
