Today’s picture for you is of the iconic Headframe Assembly of the Soudan Underground Mine at the eponymous park. This device allows the elevator car (that you can ride!) to be launched 2300 feet deep into the earth…
And so my pictures from Ely begin.
First off, let’s start with a carpet of green, Minnesota style. No, not a large lawn, but the seemingly endless forests of Northern Minnesota. This view is from a hill at Soudan Underground Mine State Park, in Soudan, Minnesota…about 30 miles west of where we were camping.
As you can see, the forest does go on as far as the eye can see.
A book of erotica I received for reading and reviewing by the anthology, the prolific Rachel Kramer Bussel…
I am still working on my pictures from my trip to the Northwoods of Minnesota. In the meantime, here is something different…a dramatic stormy view off of I-90 in South Dakota. The storm is approaching, the sun is shining behind me (see the shadow of my car and me?) and you can almost smell the rain coming.
Sometimes weather changes make for the best and most interesting photographs, don’t you think?
Today’s picture keeps us in Glacier National Park, and shows us the scenic mountain view along the Aster Falls Trail.
As I said yesterday for yesterday’s picture, its difficult not to take a picture of something scenic, interesting or gorgeous in Glacier National Park.
A spectacular new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image — one of the largest ever released of a star-forming region — highlights N11, part of a complex network of gas clouds and star clusters within our neighbouring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. This region of energetic star formation is one of the most active in the nearby Universe.
Go forth and see the lovely new pictures!
This is Two Medicine Lake, the lake near the campground My Friends The Olsons™, Scott’s Parents, and of course myself camped in back in 2009. The topography of the area was just beautiful and I have numerous shots of various views of the lake and the mountains.
I definitely need to return someday soon.
