Driving Aircraft (part 2) [Updated]

Some of you may remember a previous post in a similar style. I saw this on Oct 22, but I didn't get a chance to post these until today...

I spotted it up ahead, and grabbed my camera. It's just an unusual thing to see...

I was traveling across the Minnesota River's Bloomington Ferry Bridge, and decided to take pictures while I could. He was going pretty slow.

Clearly, I was driving, and not taking great photographs, but I was doing the best I could.

For those who like to look up such things, I got a good shot of the tail number.

Well, that was my morning.

Looks like an unlucky Piper...

Saturday's Day Trip

I couldn't have asked for better weather. Sure, it's Minnesota and it's getting cool, but there was barely a cloud in the sky...

Darwin and Ray are some co-workers who are in town for a month, and this is their last full weekend in Minnesota. I had offered earlier to take them to see Lake Superior. Darwin, in particular, had mentioned how much he wanted to see the great lakes... so I figured I'd do the best I could, and show him the big one that's only a few hours drive from here.

I drove north on I-35, through Duluth first, and kept driving to Two Harbors. I have always been fond of the view of the lake-shore and the vastness of the lake that can be seen from there.
From Oct 4-Superior

We hung out along the rocky shore, ate lunch in Two Harbors at the Black Woods Bar & Grill, then we drove back into Duluth.

I took skyline drive from the north, along 7 bridge road. We stopped for a few minutes at the seventh bridge to take photos of Amity Creek and the surroundings. We stopped for a few minutes at hawk ridge. Then we went to Enger Tower.

After an hour at Enger tower, we headed to Canal Park to walk around, and get a closer look at the bridge.

Have fun looking around the photos I took on Saturday.
