Island Lake

I was born in Duluth so it always feels good to visit. My grandparents are long gone so now we visit Dan’s niece, Kaye Witzman, when we travel there. It is very relaxing to stay with Kaye as she lives on Island Lake outside of Duluth. We ususally see deer around the cabin. The deer hang out in Kaye’s yard.

Nephews at Iron River, WI

We took a day trip to visit her brother-in-law in Iron River, WI. He know owns The Other Place Bar and Grill right on the TriCounty Corridor Trail for mountain bikes, snowmobiles, and ATVs.  As stated on the Trail website, “Iron River, at mile 40, is the first—and last—chance to find refreshments or a restroom on the trail.” So you can imagine that the weekends are busy. The parking lot abuts the trail so it is easy for riders to stop. I can attest that the pub food is very good.
