Military Museum in Superior Wisconsin


This is the most complete WWII Jeep (actually a Ford GPW) I've ever seen:





Dragon Boat Races Superior Wisconsin


They have these dragon boat races around Lake Superior (Grand Marais MN, Bemidji MN and Superior WI) every year.  Very elaborate boats with crews of over 20.  races are benefit races, and many millions are collected every year. Great fun for participants and spectators alike.




Two other interesting boats:





Lots of heats for all day racing



They put on a spread too!







Amnicon Falls

Stayed here this evening.  Came early enough to see  the falls at this state park.






Nice campground, too

Meyers Beach

Heading east towards Meyers Beach, a National Parks Beach with kayak outfitters putting out for Pictured Rocks. On the way there, we stopped to see these "school buses".



Nice beach, clean water!






Sand Bay Campground

Can they get better than this?
