Superior and Duluth

Superior and Duluth

Photo by Ben Prepelka

     Duluth, Minnesota, once land of the Ojibwe Peoples, was transformed into one of the largest inland seaports in the world. Its streets and mansions built by timber and mining profits. Today, the waterfront still sees ships laden with iron ore, coal and grain, headed for a 2,400 mile journey through the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean.
     The early morning bustle of this seaport town is slowly brightened by the neighboring Wisconsin sunrise. Separated by Superior Bay and connected by Richard I. Bong Bridge, Wisconsin's town of Superior lies adjacent to Duluth. The two cities cover the western corner of the world's largest freshwater lake. Duluth also rests at the foot of Route 61, often cited as one of the most beautiful drives in America.
