A Foggy Drive

The rain ended overnight and the fog rolled in as it warmed to 6º by morning. We made use of our full hookups site (you know what I mean)  before leaving the campground at 8:45. We continued west on hwy 28 through patchy fog and drove back into  rain within the hour. We followed hwy 53 to Superior and by-passed Duluth as we crossed into Minnesota.
There was more traffic, much of it vehicles towing fishing boats. We  made a comfort stop in the quaint town of Floodwood, "Catfish Capital of the World."

We arrived in Grand Rapids around noon, too early to stop for the day as we had planned originally and continued on  after stopping for gas @ $2.29.9 / gal..
We stopped to have lunch at the Pokegama Dam Recreation Area on the Mississippi River. The dam
is a headwaters lakes project.

We arrived at Royal Oaks RV Park, a Good Sam campground  in Bemidji at 2:15. It was nice to stop early after motoring  367 km. We needed the furnace again as it reached only 9º. The rain ended. There was  just a scotch mist which didn't stop us from taking a good walk outside the campground.
