Fog and dirty snow

Today the tempature is mild (for us northerners) but the fog can be mystifying. I heard that it was raining in Pike Lake. It’s not raining along Skyline Drive, but the fog is think over the lake. Do you see the clock tower, and the Aerial Lift Bridge? And the smoke stack? The smoke stack is from the steam plant which is used to most of downtown Duluth. This photo was taken from the parking lot of the Coppertop church. I saw many other interesting scenes, but wanted to pull off in a space that was safe.

Foggy day

Today it was foggy on Skyline Parkway and further up the hill, but downtown and Canal Park were clear. As soon as hitting 6th Street the air clear out. Skyline around this area would be considered 14th Street if it had a number.  From the City of Duluth on Skyline Parkway:

Skyline Parkway is one of Duluth’s tresures, uniquely showcasing the city from end to end while providing spectacular views of Lake Superior and the St. Louis River Bay.

Skyline Parkway offers many observations overlooks along the way. Many of the neighboring parks and trails offer recreational activities such as hiking, cross-country skiing, bird watching, and more. Be sure to see what highlights skyline parkway has to offer.
