Park Point

Claire Pettit of Denton, Texas, shares this photo of a beautiful Monarch butterfly she saw on Minnesota Point. Pettit, who is spending the summer in Duluth, writes, “I was out walking my dog, Cleo, with my parents when we stumbled across this amazing creature resting among some sticks and old pieces of driftwood. It's not every day that one sees one of these rare butterflies, so I snapped a quick picture.”

The 12th Street Beach on Park Point was a popular place to be Monday afternoon as temperatures soared into the 80s for the third straight day. The heat won't last much longer, though -- a big cooldown is in the forecast for later in the week, the National Weather Service reported; highs on Thursday may struggle to reach 60.
