We had never gone quite that far North, on the North Shore
So last weekend on our little get away,
we planned to go as far north as we could....
...without a passport
Grand Portage is on the boarder of Minnesota and Canada
and only 35 miles north of Grand Marais.
It was a perfect little side trip to go with our Grand Marais visit.
We drove right up to the border and made a "U" turn, always glad to be in MN
Grand Portage state Park is right there, parts of it are in Canada, and part in MN
The pigeon River ( the left side of it is Canada)
We stopped at this State Park to see the advertised
"highest falls in Minnesota"
named for just that...."High Falls"
It was only a 1/2 mile hike and it was beautiful
The crazy water plummets 120 feet to the pigeon river below.
