YouTube user “MNduro USA” brought a scuba tank to Amity Creek and searched for treasure in the swimming hole known as “The Deeps.” “There were a lot of craw fish, trout and I spotted a Goby down there!” he writes in the video description. “Kody, the river guide, wanted to jump off the cliff … so we did!”
The Northshore streams are starting to ice over. The sunshine of the past few days have made them even more magical. In this short time lapse video taken Thursday afternoon, 10 minutes are reduced to 15 seconds. Enjoy some serenity on Amity Creek.
Almost exactly a year after the historic flood, we found the timing to be refreshingly ironic as we set off on our annual tree planning exercise. Employees from Loll Designs, Epicurean, and Intectural all joined to plant trees in four areas around Duluth (Amity Creek, Hartley, Kingsbury Creek, and Featherstone Drive). As it is known, erosion from stream beds were hit hard from the flood and we saw that first-hand as we sought to plant and rehab those areas.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s planning to focus on areas in Duluth which need it most. Plus, fresh air and getting your hands a bit dirty is always nice change from the office!
‘Til next year!
