8/11/14 Highway 61 Detour

8/11/14 – Heads up for a detour starting today on Highway 61 in the Little Marais area. You will be routed up Highway 1 in Illgen City and back down Highway 6 to Highway 61 in Little Marais. The detour is 13 miles in total and adds 7 miles to your trip.
The good news is that the detour is quite scenic and takes you through the community of Finland, which has a lot of Minnesota character. You will pass by the Finland Co-op which is the oldest cooperative venture in Minnesota. You will also pass the Finland Heritage Center and the entrance to the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center. -Bill
