The Grand Gitche Gumee

 Lake Superior Moon

Sunset Over Duluth

Duluth Lift Bridge

In anticipation of watching the largest and brightest full moon for 2010 rise with its companion Mars over one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world, my husband and I took a 45 minute drive to the shore yesterday afternoon. We missed the moon as it crested Lake Superior, but were still greeted by a beautiful sight as its golden glow reflected off the slowly forming ice and rippling dark water. Our gaze was then directed to the beautiful sunset silhouetting the city of Duluth in Minnesota, and Superior in Wisconsin.

~ What a beautiful end to the day. ~


  1. Once again, your photos are breathtaking! The moon was so bright, I thought the neighbor left a porchlight on:)

  2. Our family treks to Northern Minnesota every year. One year we came back through Duluth and we spent two hours just wandering around before we headed down into Duluth. An absolutely gorgeous view. We were there during the day; I think I would love to see it at night, too. Thank you for sharing.
