“Dancing Sky” in the name of the Eastern Waters of the Dancing Sky Scenic Byway refers to the aurora borealis (northern lights) that appear in the sky thanks to the area’s lack of bright city lights. SR 11 starts in International Falls and follows in close proximity to Rainy Lake until it ends in Island View. Small towns are far between on the two-lane road that has farmland in abundance.
