Fall Colors - Minnesota

Yesterday was beautiful and warm and the colors were peaking in Minnesota. No better time to ride up here. Just a few quick shots for those of you who don't get to enjoy autumn in the same way.










I followed State Hwy 23 from Sandstone up to Duluth. The road parallels a train track embankment.




Many trains in northern Minnesota carry taconite pellets, a form of iron ore. The train tracks are often littered with it.







Lots of fun back roads to explore










Afternoon was quickly passing, but I had to get north of Duluth and see the big lake:




Routed back down through Superior, Wisconsin, home of clever bar signs:




And then home via State Hwy 35 in Wisconsin. Hope you enjoyed the shots.
