Duluth, MN: Great Lakes Aquarium

After hiking Isle Royale, I spent some time in Duluth, MN, before heading back home to Michigan. Even in late May, there were still chunks of ice in the Duluth harbor!

Locals said that they expected to see ice here until July this year!

Along the riverfront, you'll find Duluth's aquarium. It's a lovely place to spend some time exploring.

Moose statue!

 They even have a moose statue that you can pet, and since I wasn't able to pet any moose on Isle Royale (though one wandered through our camp one evening), I took advantage of this opportunity.

Live lamprey

 And they even had sea lamprey on display.
