Greetings from Grand Marais,

This summer there is major road construction in multiple areas in Duluth and
near Split Rock Lighthouse. Motorists have experienced delays and
frustrations getting through Duluth and this weekend the Tall Ships are in
the Duluth Port creating even more traffic through town. I highly recommend
taking a detour that will add 38 miles to your trip but it will go around
both construction zones starting at Cloquet and returning to Hwy 61 at
Beaver Bay. There is a fun video clip describing the detour on our tourism
website, called the Scenic "Scenic" Route: On the road
with Jason Portman. There are things to see along the way including a Frank
Lloyd Wright gas station, Finnish Schoolhouse and old-fashioned family

The detour starts just south of Duluth off I-35. Exit on Hwy 33 north at
Cloquet, which merges into Hwy 53. Go east on Hwy 16, which turns into Hwy
15 as the Superior National Forest Byway. Then drop down into Beaver Bay on
Hwy 5 and you'll be back on 61 north again.

Paddles UP!

The paddles are varnished, the t-shirts are printed, cowbells are poised and ready for ringing. The women have trained... (HA) Well, at least they are ready for a great weekend. Carpools are arranged, tents are being pitched. Half of us are thinking we need to bake cookies, half of us need to pick up a bottle of wine.
When the call comes "Paddles UP!" and the air horn sounds, we will paddle. We will paddle in awesome synchronicity . We will paddles untill we are spent, knowing that we already won our prize in the pre event parade! Now, just remember, Let's NOT create an emergency situation.
Good luck gals!
