The Journey(s): Day 5

The Journey(s): Day 5

Today was almost like going home day.  We visited Rocky Mountain National Park.  My wife and I met in Colorado and Meg chose to go to school here as well, so it allowed us to visit, revisit, and create new favorite places and friends.

The Journey(s): Day 3

Red sky’s at night – Diver’s Delight!

What 12K mile road trip would be complete without a few dives!

While getting fitted for a Madiera wreck dive in Lake Superior, we heard the rumble of thunder.  The storm location and hour drive north of Duluth, MN provided a beautiful day and dive.  Vis a bit low due to recent rains, but, extremely enjoyable and we were also able to make some new inquisitive friends – Sculpins – Give your pics the Vivid-Pix Fix!

On the road again:  through the State of 10,000 Lakes – up to Voyageurs National Park.  As we begin to view a few of our National Parks, we are awed by the variety of these treasures that our forefathers provided to us.  Voyageurs:  500 miles of untouched coastline. 

Reflectively, we were able to spend the day on and in the water – what a wonderful way to spend the day.  Thank you Nancy – Lake Superior Divers Supply & School (https://www.lakesuperiordivers.com/) – your friendly, customer service will not be forgotten.  Founded in 1956 by Donald Van Nispen, you continue the legacy of a dive shop that has been around since the beginning of all of us blowing bubbles.
