Voyageur Hasn’t Floated Away
While Duluth, Minnesota suffered extensive flooding we received less than 3" of rain at the end of the Gunflint Trail. The Gunflint Trail is in perfect driving condition(as perfect as it gets) and Grand Marais is fine too. We’re lucky we didn’t receive the 7-9 inches of rain areas around Duluth did.
While travel in Duluth, Minnesota is not easy right now there are detours so our guests can make it up to Voyageur. We had guests arrive yesterday who said the detour only took about 15 minutes longer than the normal route would have taken them. I’m sure the road crews will have the main highway fixed quickly and travel times will be back to normal.
Our water level continues to rise and it’s very close to the highest we’ve seen in 20 years. There aren’t rocks showing in the rapids and a swim across the river is no longer just a quick trip. We have planking in place to get out to the dock ramps(something John never would have thought would be needed). Other than wet feet the high water levels at Voyageur aren’t causing any trouble at all.
