Fall Color ride Lutsen Mountain Minnesota

Everybody and their dog (in some cases) were at Lutsen Mountains for fall color and a Gondola ride up Moose Mountain. A ride to the top and lunch at the Mountain top Chalet that was built just a few years ago to replace the older restaurant. It's quite a thrill to take the ride and the view all the way to Upper Michigan. We ate down below at Papa Charlie's restaurant at the bottom as it was less crowded. They have excellent burgers and sweet potato fries. And there is a deck facing Moose Mountain. I would guess when we left that the line for the Gondola was at least a 100 people deep if not more? It was quite the scene and my thoughts were there are more quiet places to see fall color. Perhaps we will be back for spring break and skiing in March!
