Denfeld High School

I took this photo for my DDP fan, Lowell. This is the Denfeld High School Clock Tower, the outside around it is a remodeling job done a couple of years ago. The school was enlarged.

A Year in the Wilderness

I was downtown to see a movie at the Zeitgeist and a bycyling crowd gathered around this red canoe. Members of the Sierra Club biked through parts of Duluth with Amy and Dave Freeman, authors of A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters. 

They will be pulling the canoe behind them as they bike the 1,750 miles to Washington D.C. They plan to take their canoe to U.S. senators and congressmen to discuss protecting the Boundary Waters Canoe Areas the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from the threat of proposed copper mining. The invited members of the public to sign the canoe.

They are National Geographic Adventurers of the year.

Another laker in the ice

This is for you out-of-town DDP fans. The lake is smooth and glass-like. There is still some ice on the lake. I talked to an Uber driver who said that he knew a tugboat operator who said sonar showed the ice was 18 feet thick in the bay.

Celebrating hopscotch weather

This little boy enjoyed the warm outside weather. His sister made this hopscotch. He doesn’t quite understand hopscotch, but was glad to give it a try for the photographer.His mom says he loves being outside. His mom and his grandmother sat on the front stoops enjoying the sun also. Today was the first day that we had weather warm enough to just hang-out outside.

Shirtless in Duluth

Though our ships are still cutting through ice, and snow is on the ground, it got up to 60 degrees today. And it looks like track has started for Marshall school. Here a group of boys run shirtless. Surely it’s a sign of spring.

Laker arrives in April ice

Though I already posted one photo today, “Shirtless in Duluth,” this one is paired with it … a laker gliding through the ice into the canal.

Elevate your downtown Duluth experience

Since  construction work has West Superior Street blocked and torn up, downtown merchants are urging customers to use the skywalk. Phase I was delayed due to the significant snowfall from this past weekend. motorists heading east into downtown from I-35 or West Superior Street will be detoured to Michigan Street or up Mesaba Ave to 2nd Street. The west bound lane of Superior Street from 3rd Ave West will close. This link shows the skywalk system. You need to scroll to the bottom before downtown and skywalk appears.

Stained glass

I noticed this stained glass window above a door at Duluth Bethel. A quick internet search lists a L.A. Marvin as superintendent of schools. I didn’t have time to do more research.
