Should have just turned around up there at the top.

Approaching the Porcupine Mtns





























Crappy pic but there really is quite a bit of riding close to waters edge....and the small towns are neat too, don't care much for the big ones tho.

Next was a trip up to the old underground mine in Soudan.





























You can take a tour and ride down into the old shaft if you like...I passed on that but, I think there's actually a bit of research work that goes on down there too.
