Potholes In Paradise

Potholes in West Duluth
Duluth is a beautiful part of the world. If you have any doubts, check out the website Destination Duluth. Lake Superior must be the 8th Wonder of the World, and the manner in which the communities encircle it--from its southernmost tip up the North Shore into Canada and across to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and back around the horn to the South Shore across Wisconsin--is something to behold. 

Throughout the year photographers are out capturing the region's natural beauty. Examples abound. John Heino is a friend whose work is always dazzling. You can find him on Facebook or  see his gallery at https://johnheino.smugmug.com/  Dennis O'Hara's is another photographer doing interesting work. He now has 16 live cameras providing visual delights 24/7. A few are up the North Shore, though most down here around the harbors. Here's the website where you can watch live as ships come and go, as sunrises and sunsets dazzle along with the occasional spectacle seldom seen further south: our periodic though often bashful Northern Lights. (see: DuluthHarborcam.com)

If you're driving here from out of town, do pay attention to the roads. We have weather that is unkind to asphalt and it's a little dangerous if you're not paying attention.

Superior Street from 23rd to 27th

When I got out of my car to look at this one, a man in a pickup
opened his window to ask, "Are you looking for your Volkswagen?"

This one was much deeper than it looks.
Yes, this is what some of our side streets look like
I'm curious what the neighbors think about this.
Maybe they like it because it keeps the speeders away?

I found two cats and a little boy living in this one.*
