July 4 - Independence Day (Hibbing to Marquette, MI)

We had quite a time getting to Lake Superior. Being the 4th we had detours in nearly every little town we encountered. We saw some of several parades. Here we are almost 2000 miles from Utah and people and celebrations aren't all that different at all. We finally made it to Gitcheegumee and the Split Rock Lighthouse. We had a great time seeing how things were back in the 20's when the lighthouse was in it's prime. There were folks in period costumes and period furnishings in the Keeper's house.

You are making me homesick & nostalgic. Your travels thus far have been on home turf... as we have followed your trail before in our previous young lives. Soon you will be in unfamiliar territory. I love the way you are sharing your trip....the written word and pictures.....WOW! Thanks a million!
