Heading West Tomorrow

I'm sitting in the Dunn Brothers Coffee on Paul Bunyan Drive across from Lake Bemidji using their free wireless. This is my last day in Minnesota for this summer. It's been fun as usual - the North country of Minnesota is a special place.

This is a picture looking towards Lake Bemidji from inside Dunn Bros -

Usually we make the trip from Washington to Minnesota on I-90/I-94 but I'm looking forward to a trip west on highway 2 this summer. I haven't been along the Montana highline for years and it will be nice to see that big sky unimpeded by mountains or trees. Highway 2 turns into Glacier Park's Going-to-the-Sun Road which gets up to 6646 feet so it isn't all flat land.
