This Scenic Drive Runs Straight Through Minnesota’s Grand Portage National Monument, And It’s A Breathtaking Journey

Isn’t it amazing how much incredible natural beauty can be packed into such a short distance? What’s truly incredible is just how much more there is to see over this 38-mile stretch of road!
