Two Harbors Lighthouse and Museum
North Shore Commercial Fishing
Beginning in 1850 many immigrants from Norway and Sweden were drawn to the area, attracted by the similarities to the landscape of their homeland and using the fishing and logging skills they brought with them. Their rich history is commemorated through displays at the Split Rock Lighthouse Museum and North Shore Commercial Fishing Museum located in Tofte.
Lake Superior is the coldest of the Great Lakes. My trips were in late spring and early fall and I found the coast to be often shrouded in fog. During the warmer months between spring and fall the land surrounding the lake heats warmer than the water. The fog happens when moist warm air condenses as it flows over the cold lake.
