Stopped in Grand Marais to have lunch and a few brewskis at Voyageur Brewing Company and then out for a stroll out at Artists’ Point!

On our way back home, we made a few stops along the Minnesota North Shore. Devil’s Kettle Falls is located in the Judge C. R. Magney State Park and about an hour round-trip hike to the falls area from the parking lot. My car’s battery also crapped out on us during this stop too.
After driving through Sleeping Giant and realizing that nothing was open there for activities, we decided to make a trip out to Ouimet Canyon hoping that it wouldn’t let us down either. Fortunately for us, the park area and lookout pods were open!
A waterfall on the Kaministiquia River that’s just west of Thunder Bay with views from both sides of the gorge. Kakabeka Falls was still a beautiful sight to behold even during Autumn with ice and snow forming on the banks of the rivers.
Lesson learned: don’t go to Thunder Bay during the off-season, it will be fairly quiet in terms of liveliness and activities. Nevertheless, still enjoyed finding things to do and making sure our time was well spent for a weekend trip to Canada!
They weren’t kidding about it being spectacular. I didn’t count to see if there were over 5,000 jack-o-lanterns, but there enough of different sizes and designs to keep people of all ages entertained. This was the 2nd year they had this Jack-o-lantern Spectacular at the Minnesota Zoo and for my first time there, I was very impressed!
A brief review on our experience visiting Oahu, Hawaii. Included in this post are links to all the relevant posts that feature photos from Oahu!
A few panorama shots from our Hawaii adventure that were taken at various spots on Oahu.
The last stop before we headed back to the Pearl Harbor visitor center was the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum. It had multiple hangars with various aircrafts and some aircrafts sitting outside also for visitors to look at.
The USS Missouri is where the Japanese officially surrendered to the United States in World War II to end the war. We had the opportunity to explore the memorial by ourselves after checking out the USS Arizona and USS Bowfin.
