21 Airstream trailers were at the Indian Point Campground on Sunday, set to begin a 30 day, 1500 mile journey to New Orleans.

The entire tour is centered around Bob Dylan's 1965 album, "Highway 61 Revisited."

"Bob Dylan released this album in 1965, and he had already the vision, back then, that this is really the quintessential highway of modern American music," said Caravan Leader Ingo Werk. 

While the group is in the Northland, they'll be doing a Bob Dylan tour including a trip to Hibbing, then they will head to the Twin Cities to visit those Dylan sites, and continue heading south to explore more musical history.
