Each bend of Hwy. 61 reveals yet another spectacular rocky cliff, an awe-inspiring lake vista, a roadside streaked purple by blooming lupine, a seemingly endless carpet of pine and birch. Sometimes all four, simultaneously. All that beauty naturally overshadows a different but no less compelling brand of scenery: rooftop signs heralding "Fresh Pie." Lake Superior views framed by dining room windows. Smoked lake trout stacked behind glass cases. Welcome to the North Shore, and don't forget to pack your appetite.
