This is the kind of weather and scenery that awaits us in northeastern Minnesota.
This is the size fish I am sure we will catch.
Total wilderness! No phones, cars, motors, and very few people. Just relax.
This is a picture of a boat building class in one of the North House classroom buildings. The North House offers rides and overnight trips on the 50' gaff-rigged schooner 'Hjordis'.
Grand Marais is recognized as one of the great "artist towns" in the USA. It has an active Art Colony, the folk school and many art galleries. Several professional artists make Grand Marais their home.This is a view of GM during the winter (maybe October) and it is the reason that I moved to Arkansas about 21 years ago.

This is a lineup of the carving contest winners. L-R Rusty Johnson (1st), Me (2nd), Lynn Doughty (3rd), and Ray North (HM). We had an hour and 15 minutes to carve a cocker spaniel from a cutout blank. There were about 14 carvers that participated.
