Our fall foliage adventure begins today as we make our way north up to Duluth. Upon arrival to Duluth, we'll board the North Shore Scenic Railroad's Duluth Zephyr through downtown, along the shoreline of Lake Superior, through the historic Congdon Neighborhood wooded area, until it reaches a siding where we stop briefly to turn around and return to the Depot. Afterwards, we will head over to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum and see it’s impressive collection of historic railroad equipment that built Minnesota and our country. The museum is located in downtown Duluth, in the platforms at yard of the original Historic Union Depot, built in 1892. Next, we check into our hotel located in Canal Park.
