So happy to have one of my commuting routes back! Last June a massive rain event washed out many roads in Duluth. Haines Rd/40th Ave W. was one of them. It was slated for repairs prior to the flood, but this event moved things up a year.
Helpful additions are a sidewalk along the northeastern side.
|Near the corner of Haines and Skyline, looking towards the bay|
|Just above the hairpin curve|
|Looking back up the hill after the hairpin curve. Lots of little trees, a run off pond on the far left of the frame and rip rap in the ditch.|
|About a block above the railroad crossing As you can see, this is one of the major commuting routes.|
|Note the taconite pellets. Nothing like hitting a bunch of round pellets at the bottom of a .8 mile steep descent.|
It was a lovely morning to run and I stopped to capture these photos of frosty leaves just because. I am sure the neighbors were wondering what I was doing.
