The last time Lake Superior was frozen completely was during the winter of 1996-1997. Yesterday as we were exploring Duluth and taking pictures as a contributor on the Go-Trippin website and Field Trip app on your smartphone, we stopped to view Lake Superior in all its frozen majesty! Currently, the lake is approximately 92% frozen in ice and is expected to be 100% frozen before this winter is over. This is a phenomenon that happens only once in about 30 years because of the depth of the water, the cold winter temperatures, constant wave motion and wind speed.
Guests at The Firelight Inn on Oregon Creek Bed and Breakfast enjoy driving up the North Shore in this beautiful winter season stopping to view the ice flows along Lake Superior. Many have made the trip over to the Apostle Islands to see the incredible ice caves Mother Nature presented us this year.
Make your plans to travel to Duluth and spend your romantic getaway, vacation, birthday, anniversary, midweek or long weekend stay at The Firelight Inn on Oregon Creek Bed and Breakfast. We look forward to meeting you!
