US State Highpoints
Eagle Mountain, Minnesota
The drive along the shores of Lake Superior was pleasant, with many scenic areas along the way.
A serene pond I happened upon, just a few miles from the trailhead.
The road to the highpoint was well maintained, and passed through thick forest.
I decided to give the folding bike a try!
Made great time, until I hit the rocky areas.
This is as far as the folding bike made it.
There are a few boardwalks passing over boggy areas, but the trail was solid.
A view from the edge of Whale Lake.
The summit was shrouded by forest, but quiet and peaceful.
