What a Time We Had

My wife and I circled Lake Superior in July. After a brief visit to our daughter in Madison, Wisconsin, we unloaded our motorcycle and headed for Ashland to begin the (clockwise) Circle Tour. This was my first big bike trip after retiring earlier this year and we were able to take our time – and what a time we had! The weather was perfect, except for the heat on the More

All Good

My spouse and I drove the Big Lake this summer! Our trip started June 30, 2011, leaving from Duluth, going clockwise and returning July 10 in Duluth and back home to Sartell, Minnesota. We drove our Mazda Miata, packed lightly and had one of the most pleasurable times in our life. What a magnificent area to see. The first day out it rained as we pulled into Grand Marais, Minnesota, More

So Beautiful

Started from Duluth and went up into Canada. We rode in some rain coming into Ironwood, Michigan, and ended up staying at Budget Host there, 447 West U.S. Hwy 2. Kevin & Sherri Cox were soooo accommodating!!! And their beds … let’s just say “we slept like babies.” Definitely would go back there! We also stayed at another very relaxing place called Superior Rentals in Bayfield, Wisconsin. It is a wonderful More

Our Circle Tour

Monday, July 11-Tuesday, July 18, 2011. Our Lake Superior Circle Tour began with a very strategic stop at the Lake Superior Magazine (LSM) office (310 E. Superior Street, Duluth, Minnesota) where we spoke to the helpful staff and purchased Lake Superior, the Ultimate Guide to the Region published by LSM. This book was a helpful addition to all of the maps and tour books we received from AAA (Automobile Club More

I Completed the Tour

I am browsing on your website which was linked on the Goldwing Rider’s website. I’ve seen your magazine many times while in Duluth or Sault Ste. Marie, but had not completed the Circle Tour until last summer. Please add me to the list of Circle Tour members and send me the decal. I completed the tour in July 2011 on a Goldwing motorcycle. By the way, I’m leaving home next More

The Scenery Is Breathtaking

My wife and I just completed a wonderful, nine-day, 1,717-mile drive around Lake Superior. We traveled counterclockwise from Bayfield, Wisconsin. We departed on Saturday, July 9, 2011, and completed the circle on Sunday, July 17. Weather was definitely our friend with a touch of rain on the first and eighth days only. The sun ruled supreme otherwise. In fact, thanks to Ontario’s Eastern Daylight Time zone, the sun didn’t set More
