This week I am in Blaine, Minnesota with camera in hand capturing the action at what is billed as the largest youth soccer tournament in the western hemisphere. Teams from Minnesota, the United Sates and all over the world converge on this location for competition, fun, pin trading and a chance to learn about our beautiful state. As usual, we are having some of our hottest weather of the summer during the event. But the action goes on and everyone is having a blast.

There are seven bridges that cross Amity Creek in Duluth. Follow Occidental Blvd, which is just west of N 60th Ave E and Superior St E, it will become Seven Bridges Road as you cross the first of the seven bridges.
