Tag Archives: Jay Cooke State Park

On a recent trip to Duluth we stopped at Jay Cooke State Park. It had been some time since we had visited the park and the park itself was mostly close after a damaging flood in June of 2012. The popular swinging bridge over the St. Louis River was almost destroyed in the flood. this fall some of the park was opened and the bridge had been restored.-Swinging-Bridge-Jay-Cooke-State-Park-13-11-_0386

Walking along the river we could see the high water mark and the large amount of debris that was deposited high upon the cliffs.

The weather had turned cold and the ice was starting to form on the river.
