sky over Rainy Lake
The sky above
The ice below, or the ice huts of the American men.
Earlier that morning, looking out my hotel room window, I saw the lights of skidoos bobbing towards the huts.
The American town of International Falls, across Rainy Lake and Rainy River from Fort Frances. We did not attempt to cross the border, not only for the reasons I mentioned earlier, but we thought, are studded tires against the law in Minnesota? If so, we wouldn't have been able to cross simply because of our snow tires. Besides, did we want to pay the $8 toll to leave the US? Pay them after most likely first being questioned?
