The view overlooks the towns of Mountain Iron and Virginia Minnesota. It was so pretty up there! You can see an old mine and where they are currently mining. Word has it that the plan is to blow up some roads and move them to keep mining. I don’t think my GPS will be able to keep up as it had plenty of trouble with the rural Minnesota roads as it was! At the top there is a neat gift shop with huge windows giving a great view even from inside.
We enjoyed the view, watched some mining from afar, successfully didn’t break anything in the gift shop, played around the big trucks and climbed on the nearby play ground. Adults and children alike enjoyed this stop. Mineview in the Sky is free!
