Eagle mountain is the highest point in minnesota. It is maybe 20 miles away from lake supierior, and has a 500 ft vertical rise.
There is also another eagle mountain in lutsen mountains ski area.

It rise 700 ft.
The mountains on lake supierior are called the sawtooth mountains.
The mountains in the boudry waters are called misqua hills.

^^^I've hiked to the top of Eagle Mountain, it's pretty sweet. At the top, you're looking over the lake and you can see curves in the shoreline that would normally only be visible from the air or a map. You still can't see the other side of the lake though, it looks like an ocean. I wish had a digital camera when I was there.

I checked the highest points in WI, MI, and OH, (don't think I need to check IL, IA, etc.) and at 2300 ft above sea level, it looks like Eagle Mountain is the highest point in the midwest.

Nice pics, I really love the drive from Duluth to Lutsen. It has been many years since I was there last and hope to get up there this summer and do some hiking/biking. Any suggestions?
I recommend Tettegouche State Park. Check out Palisade Head, and hike up the Baptism river to see a bunch of water falls.

Here's Palisade Head:


Here's a pic of the Baptism River:
