Every weekend during summer, vacationers from all over Minnesota and beyond pack up the family car and head north to Highway 1. The highway cuts a jagged route across the top quarter of the state, from North Dakota in the west, to the rocky shores of Lake Superior in the east, through farmland, reservation, lake and lodge country. Curious about this storied Northlands highway, KAXE producer Britt Aamodt hit the road to explore for herself.
