City of Duluth Fire Department Issues Dangerous Swimming Warning

It's Labor Day Weekend.  For many that means one last chance to go to the cabin, go camping, or spend some time on the beach before we get into the Fall grind of school, college, becoming chauffeur to our kids and their activities. (although the weather this weekend has been less than co operable).  For those choosing the beach option, the conditions have worsened due to the wind and that has prompted the Duluth Fire Department to issue a Red Flag Warning.

A study has been done on 50 lakes across Minnesota looking for chemicals that find their way into the lakes.  The most common chemical was DEET (used in bug spray).  Followed by a plastics chemical, and then surprisingly cocaine showed up.  Sometimes the cocaine was even found in remote lakes not near a sewer run off.

Cathy’s Top 5 Best Places to Swim in The Duluth / Superior Area

B105's evening gal, Jeanne Ryan and I were chatting about where we use to swim when we were kids. She said her family always wants to go to "The Deeps", near Lester Park. Sounds kinda scary, because IT IS!!!

Kids jump from high rocks into the murky waters below....and have to run and jump with enough force to propel themselves far enough from the rocks that line the water’s edge. While trying to find "The Deeps", Homie and I ran into these kids swinging from the rocks and dropping into the water below.

I immediately wondered, just WHO tied the knot in the rope? The rope was tied to the train trestle. We thought THIS was the "The Deeps", until we were told it was further down. As you can see by the picture, jumping in the Lester River has gone on for ages. I had 5 favorite swimming spots growing up. Well, 6, if you count the pond in the back forty of the Laveau Dairy Farm in Wrenshall. Now that I'm grown up, I still like to swim in some of those spots, here are the best place to swim in the Duluth/Superior area.
