Duluth in St. Louis County, Minnesota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
The Skyline Parkway
The Amity Creek and Lester River pursue indirect courses through lava formations of the Keweenawan age. The creek beds, while picturesque are relatively recent geologic age compared to the Gabbro outcroppings to the west and north. The prevailing soil is red clay deposited when the waters of Glacial Lake Duluth receded 600 million years ago. Seven Bridges Road, popular with painters and photographers, presents some of Duluth's most frequently reproduced scenes and is a recreation area for both winter and summer sports.
