I’m always amazed at what new adventure has sprung up in Duluth. Maybe this is normal for native Duluthians, something bright, shiny, and new every year. I’ve lived here roughly 14 years, back when Bentleyville was in Nathan Bentley’s backyard, before Spirit Mountain had a Timber Twister, way before pirates invaded (Tall Ships), and so on. However, it’s still surprising for me to learn something really awesome is coming to Duluth. This is probably why we’re getting noticed. Here’s a nice article we just came across today. It names Duluth, MN as one of the top 5 summer vacation spots. “Duluth packs a lot of surprising summer adventure…“ http://www.theadrenalist.com/adventure/top-5-summer-adventure-vacation-spots/
So what is bright, shiny, and new this year? Well probably a lot of things, but the one I’m thinking of right now in this perfect sunny weather is Spirit Mountain’s new mountain bike trails. Here’s a great article about it if you want more information (plus a great photo/action shot). Bike Trails Open at Spirit Mountain *Did I mention these are lift-access downhill trails!!
