Split Rock Lighthouse

So, I got a little restless and ditched my home full of tightly packed boxes and chaos to do a little exploring. Over the next three days I am going to breakdown my first trip "up north" and show you how you too can accomplish all these activities in one day.

As if I wasn't already in love with Minnesota  this mini road trip made me most excited about the beauty Minnesota has to offer and for upcoming adventures we will take.

Split Rock Lighthouse
About 200 miles north of Minneapolis in Two Harbors, MN lies the most breathtaking lighthouse I have ever seen. Located on a cliff of Lake Superior lies America's most visited lighthouse, Split Rock Lighthouse.

This lighthouse is a National Historic Landmark and a must see if you visit the state. It costs $9 to take a stroll on the grounds and climb circular stairs to the top of the lighthouse, but the views from the top are priceless. After your lighthouse visit, follow the guided hiking trail down to the shore of Lake Superior and see the lighthouse from a new perspective. It is so quiet and peaceful along the rocky beach and views are simply breathtaking.

Not sure if these photos do it justice, but here are a few of my favorites.
