One of the most easily recognized monuments of the city is Arial Transfer Bridge -built in 1905 as a transfer bridge.
In 1929 the bridge was modified - the gondola was removed, the height of the top span increased and structural supports incorporated- into the present avatar.
Another gem in Duluth is Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, famous for it’s migratory hawk watch. In fact, Hawk Ridge (refer to Neela Asman shot from the observation point) is recognized by the Audubon Society. Hawk Ridge acts as a “funnel” for tens of thousands of migratory hawks, eagles and other birds of prey.
Though we missed the annual migratory flight, I was pleasantly surprised to catch him looking down with an attitude of “ I am lord of all I survey!”
