Minnesota Point, also known as Park Point, is an excellent place to hike and enjoy the morning sun. Shortly after dawn I hiked out to the Superior entry through thick pine forests, and along beach dunes looking out over Lake Superior. For folks who like birding, Minnesota Point can be an excellent spot as birds work their way along the “longest freshwater sand bar” in the world. This morning I found huge flocks of blue jays working their way along the point during their northward migration. Yellow-shafted flickers were also making their presence known as their call echoed through the woods. It was a great morning.
