Since I find myself in the northern part of the state, I'm posting a picture of a really big truck parked next to a really big hole in the ground from which lots of iron ore has been mined since back in the early 1900's. There was once so much iron to be mined here that it caused the mining company to move the village of Hibbing so they could dig it up. I hadn't seen the big hole in the ground since the Iron Range TRAM five or six years ago, and I'm still amazed at its scope.
It was a nice day on the Iron Range, but even with the temperatures in the 50's, there is ice on the streets of Hibbing. Residual ice from the last few days below freezing.
And I had lunch at Sammy's Pizza, the same pizza joint where I had my first slice of the cheesy delicacy in 1960 or 1961. Life is good.
