We love it when local Minnesota people and places get noticed!
Today’s (July 5th, 2015) Bing homepage featured a picture Black Spruce Trees in Superior National Forest, Minnesota. The photo was taken by Jim Brandenburg a local Minnesota environmentalist and nature photographer and filmmaker based near Ely.
Fun Fact: Superior National Forest is comprised of 3.9 million acres, nearly a half-million of which are under water.
