This is an early Zamboni built on top of a jeep.
While there, Dave and I took time to practice our slap shots.
This is the scene from Mineview in the Sky. It looks out over an inactive open pit mine. This is one of the tallest man-made structures in Minnesota. Actually it is a road up a gigantic pile of scrap from the mine.
Eveleth bills itself as the "Hockey Capital" and is home to the "World's Largest Hockey Stick".
We didn't see much in Virginia, MN but this very large loon (about the size of a garbage truck) casually swimming in one of the city lakes.
Chisholm is home to the Ironman Memorial. It is over three stories tall and weighs over four tons.
The biggest attraction in Hibbing is the Greyhound Museum.
Hibbing was the sight of the first bus system. Originally it was developed to get the miners to the mines.
We sat in bus seats to see the movie. There was a large number of buses of different eras as well as Greyhound memorabilia.
A docent also took us to the shop buildings and all the stuff in the back of the museum. This was a bus from Saudi Arabia with a divider near the back. The men rode in the front and the women rode in the back of the bus. Later it was converted to prison transportation.
We couln't pass up another mineview so went to see the largest mine in the area. There wasn't a lot of activity because this was the day for blasting.
Since I drive the truck and tow the RV, I thought I might as well drive this big dump truck.
Dave didn't want to be out done by me, so he took his turn.
