Since I was alone, I thought it time to ride some gravel.
After the mandatory coffee stop at the Mocha Moose, I continued down ole scenic 61 to Knife River. At the railroad bridge one can hop on the Old North Shore Road. This is a particularly scenic stretch of gravel . . . almost all the way back to Duluth.
oops . . . maybe they took the bridge out?
No worries, just a scenic water crossing!
It was a bit of a tough climb up and out:
No worries . . . home in plenty of time to take Claire to march in the Duluth Memorial Day parade.
It was by the way, a perfectly good bridge . . .
