While it may not be time to visit, this should give you all some nice ways to stay connected, and even support some of your favorite places here on The North Shore and in the North Woods of the Arrowhead. Ill give you some webcam links for live looks! Spring is an ever changing time here. From weather, to the thaw of the lakes and snowpack, to the spring movement of wildlife, you never know what you may see on the webcam from day to day. I’ll also give you some links to artists and photographers who can keep you entertained. Some local musicians and artists are doing what they can to entertain, and they still need support. I’ll also include some links to local North Shore and Duluth area businesses who could use support at this time. I’ll try to update often. Take a look, take care and thank you.
Webcams can be a great way to stay connected. Here are some links to webcams on the Gunflint Trail, the Lake Shore, and Duluth areas.

YouTube Channels can provide hours of entertainment. I don’t have a ton of videos, but I will add more as I can. I have moose, lynx, a few sunset and sunrise and some moonrise videos you can check out. I will add more YouTube channels in coming days. If you would like yours added, let me know.
Shop local if you can, and support your favorite spots to visit with a gift card or apparel or other show of support. A lot of these places provide things you NEED in the coming weeks and will ship. Ill add more in the coming days so check back!

Local Artists and musicians, many of whom depend on travel or tourism could use your support. Here are a few, some of whom are offering online performances among other things. I will update this section often in coming days.

Traveling and working photographers are restructuring and having to curb travel. Show some support to those who provide you with free online content and beauty. Check their social media and websites to purchase prints, gift cards or workshops or online learning if they offer it. They rely on travel and tourism to educate and provide beauty.
I will update this often, so please share and check back. Let me know if you know of anyone or have a business you would like included. Thanks everyone and take care. See you all soon.
