Most people know that Minnesota’s beauty comes from its lakes and forests. No mountains to see here, let alone sprawling canyons – or so you thought. But Minnesota actually has its own Grand Canyon. You can’t ride a mule down it, but you can still enjoy the view. The Hull-Rust-Mahoning Mine is a sprawling pit that has become known as the Grand Canyon of the North. It may be man-made, but the incredible views will blow you away.
Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon of the North? Feel free to share!
