While driving by Grand Portage we noticed a rainstorm heading our way. We decided to wait at the Susie Islands Wayside Rest and hopefully spot a rainbow after the storm passed. It didn’t take long and here was a gorgeous rainbow right over the Susie Islands.
About a half dozen North Shore visitors that were going by when the rainbow appeared pulled into the wayside. They all stood at the overlook taking in the view. There is nothing like a rainbow to bring a smile to peoples faces.
We were pretty thankful that we were in the right place at the right time.
