Hi Garry I never thought of counting the number of steps to the top of Enger Tower for I was too preoccupied with the beautiful scenery; However, thanks to your question I did some internet investigating and discovered that apparently there are 105 steps you must walk to get to the top of Enger Tower (therefore 210 steps in total to get up and down the tower).

In the winter, chances are you will encounter bad weather, and that will definitely add to your driving time. Duluth doesn't shut down in the...

Love the bridge. I like cool designs like this. Hey -- I'm going to Minneapolis in 2 months. Is it worth going to Duluth for a day in the winter time? Or does the place shut down then?
