This will be our last update from Duluth, we have really enjoyed this city and will definitely be back again. We will be making our way across Wisconsin tomorrow. We made one last drive today before leaving. We visited the Minnesota Point, also known as Park Point. We saw so many sea gulls and geese, they covered acres of land all over the island. They must be migrating from Canada, they were all over the ground resting.

Minnesota Point / Park Point from the Duluth, Minnesota hillside looking south toward Wisconsin Minnesota Point, also known as the Park Point neighborhood of Duluth, Minnesota, is a long, narrow sand spit that extends out from the Canal Park tourist recreation-oriented district of the city of Duluth. The Point separates Lake Superior from Superior Bay and the Duluth Harbor Basin. Lake Avenue South / Minnesota Avenue serves as a main route in the community.

Near the end of Minnesota Point is a small airport, Sky Harbor Airport. Beyond the airport, approximately 3/4 mile, is an old growth red and white pine forest. Within the forest is a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources designated area, the Minnesota Point Pine Forest Scientific and Natural Area, which encompasses 18 acres. We were not allowed to access this area, you have to stop at the airport.

We walked down the beach and enjoyed watching all the birds. It was another great day in Minnesota. Check back later for more from our drive across Wisconsin.
