Amidst our hectic schedule working on a home garden expansion project, we did a 4-day trip to northeastern Minnesota to see the fall colors. The last time we visited this area was in 2011.
The fall colors in Banning State Park was much prettier this time compared to our visit in 2011. We did a 3-hour hike there before stopping by Duluth for early dinner. On the second day, we decided to venture to new places by visiting Britton Peak and Carlton Peak… both peaks are located in Tofte. We made a roadside visit to Temperance River State Park to kill some time before dinner time. On the third day, we spent 5.5 hours hiking in Tettegouche State Park on a rather cold day. This is definitely one of our favorite state parks in Minnesota. In the late afternoon, we stopped by Palisade Head, which was packed with visitors for some reason.
