Lake Superior

Well, our computer is still in the shop. It’s been there since Monday, and it doesn’t look like we’ll get it back until next week. (Cue sound of hysterical sobbing, wailing and gnashing of teeth.) Since I use it for all my photo editing, I’ll have to continue showing you older photos until the return of the prodigal computer.

In July 2008, Harland and I headed north to escape the awful Kansas heat, and more importantly to celebrate a special event in our lives. Read on to find out.

We spent a week in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Most of that time was spent along the shore of Lake Superior.

We stayed in Two Harbors and Duluth, MN, and one day drove along the coast over to Wisconsin.

We just fell in love with the area.  The light was fantastic, the water crystal clear, and the views spectacular.

Lake Superior is the largest body of fresh water in the world at 350 miles long and 160 miles wide. We felt like we were at the ocean rather than a lake. The rocky coast near Two Harbors reminded me of Maine.

This area will always be special to us not just for its beauty and serenity, but also because we were there on our honeymoon. 

(PS: Since this picture was taken, Harland went on a diet and lost 40 pounds!)
