We had a warm evening and night.  When we awoke, it was still sixty two degrees outside.  Shortly after leaving Spooner, the wet hit the fan.  We drove to Hill City, Minnesota, thorough Daluth, or as it is more commonly called, Daloot.  There was a detour on the interstate, so we saw even more to the area than we had anticipated.  Finally, due to Lynnie's sharp eye and the GPs, we made it out to the highway.  More rain ..

We got to Hill City, not really appreciating the moisture and tried, in vain and in spite of help from both the Hussey and the Ozzie to find the park. No go... Then we found our way to a private RV park, which happened to be more or less underwater.  We passed on that one.

Enroute, we crossed the Mississippi River, which is overflowing it's banks, even this far north.  The ditches next to the highway were full.  I must have been an omen, since I saw only two birds on the way.  They were ducks... imagine that!  

We finally decided to venture further toward our friend Granny's place and found a park outside of Walker.  The phone took us to downtown Walker and then abandoned us.  A call to the park owner, Amy, got us straightened out and here we are.  She, Amy, and her husband built the park from the ground up.  The main building is white cedar and is of log construction.  It's a beauty.  The park is large, so we easily found a pull-through site that was reasonable.  It rained.  We got Sooby disconnected and the rig hooked up.  It rained.

Now Lynnie is reading and I'm doing this.  I only got two photos enoute, one showing what a "Bump" is on a Minnesota highway, and the other a short video of driving over a bump, from the driver's perspective.  It still rains... Good weather for ducks and for staying indoors.  

Oh yes, I forgot to mention, that we did see Lake Superior as we drove through Daloot.  Lots of large lake freighters in port undergoing repair and the like.  It's a lot of water, dat's fer shoor, eh?
