A lot of islands but this is not really a canoe/kayak type of park as the distances are greater and water is not calm. We spotted over 23 bald eagles on our voyage – the ranger knew where many of the nests were as well as the juveniles that were getting ready to be on their own. What a joy to watch them take off and soar! Kettle Falls Lodge was the historical destination for lunch. We chose to picnic by the dam/falls and enjoy this view. This international border marking was under the boardwalk so needed to be pointed out by the ranger. This beautiful private beach in Chippewa National Forest on Cass Lake was our home for three nights. Nice to relax and take some time off driving. Life doesn’t get much better than this! Sunset #1 Sunset #2 Sunset #3 The artistic shot! This is Rividoux CCC Camp – a volunteer/camp host gave us an amazing tour. He really brought that era to life and we could envision the men in the camp between their park work. The Cass Lake State Park visitor Center was built by the CCC. Amazing stone fireplace – notice how the rock placement is so symmetrical. This is the Supervisor Office in the city of Cass Lake – also built by the CCC. We could not leave Minnesota without visiting Paul Bunyon! Where is Babe? I think he left her back in Michigan!
