It is. It has a unique beauty so unlike northern MN but I have to say, equally as pretty.

Default 1980 Grand Marais 35mm photos

I had these few pics posted awhile back(Photobucket host), and I noticed they are gone.
These are from a few 35mm negatives that I found awhile back, from my stay in Duluth 1979/1980.

I was going to have them developed at a photo shop or like Walgreens, but was told that I would not receive the negatives back. So I got a flatbed scanner and tried developing them myself.

A buddy of mine from the Twin Cites and I was camping at a site near Grand Marais, and I tried to take some photos whenever I could think of it. The camp site had a good size creek next to us. I was in my early twenties in 1979/80. I had a Nikon 35mm camera(no extra lens other than what came with the camera), and thought I would become a novice photographer. But that idea did not last too long.

The look out area sign says Superior National Forest Look Out, Grand Marais. I think it is what the map says Pincushion Mountain Trail System. You could see Grand Marais from the look out. Two shots were from the Grand Marais. The cliff shot, I believe was Palisade Head rock cliff, one looking north, and the other looking south. I can't remember what water system the two shots I had were from? The snow shot was from another time, along with the Duluth harbor shot from Skyline Parkway. Classics. Enjoy.

Duluth Canal Park and current day Bayfront Festival Park was so industrial back then. It is astonishing how much change has occurred.

Indeed. That first shot is what looks like the Temperance River Campground, just off of the Sawbill Trail.

Thanks for sharing. That second shot, with the overlook, is now paved, much nicer, and a lot larger. The trail system is part of the mountain bike trails that are there. There are several blue trails, and one or two black trails.

That logging, sawmill shot is from just up the Gunflint Trail NE of Grand Marais, and of course the lighthouse in the harbor there.

South central Minnesota. DH saw it a little earlier and said before the sun was over the horizon that the sun dogs were flame red and each one and the sun were shooting up a beam of red light.

You know that it's bitter cold out when you see something like that.

It looks quite nice, I was trying to capture an unusual winter sky in the Northwoods well SE of Duluth, but the lighting wasn't quite good enough to make it work. I think the low was -31F and the high temperature was 3F the day I was out there.
