A Wonderful Trip

My husband, Clark, and I left on Monday, September 17 heading up the North Shore for what turned out to be a 9-day trip around the entire lake. Because we live in Duluth (and have seen the North Shore all our lives), we headed for Sleeping Giant Campground for our first night. Funny thing happened … we ran into our neighbors! Didn’t know they were making the trip and vice More

Our Little Adventure

I’m requesting membership for our friends from Sundre, Alberta, who along with us completed the Circle Tour of Lake Superior last summer. Barry & Candy Panrucker along with border collies, Cujo & Buddy, AND ancient (20 years) cat Stache (as in moustache), arrived in Duluth August 24 … continuing on next day to meet us at our home on beautiful Lake Superior from where we all left for our little More

Completed Twice

My wife and I (Marcus and Brittney) have done the Circle Tour twice. First in 2009 and the second was with my father (Tom) in 2011. In 2009, my wife and I did the tour on my 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. I proposed to my wife at a bed-and-breakfast inn in Thunder Bay. Favorite spots were Thunder Bay, the road on the north shore in Canada, and Duluth, Minnesota. In 2011, More

Fulfillment of a Lifelong Dream

From August 18, 2012, to September 16 my friend Tracy Johnson and I bicycled around Lake Superior. We had some equipment problems and two full days of rest, so in total we rode 1,230 miles in 25 days. We carried all of our own gear and camped out all but three nights. I am middleaged and not in excellent shape, so I felt every windy, hilly mile. It is hard More

Completed on My Bicycle

I recently completed the Circle Tour around Lake Superior on my bicycle! I completed the Circle Tour on the 28th of September. We began the Tour on the 10th of September. The entire tour was beautiful, the first day crossing over from Minnesota to Ontario was breathtaking. I also fell in love with the Upper Peninsula, and Duluth, Minnesota, was my favorite city we passed through. It is a shame More

I Really Loved Minnesota

I rode my bicycle around Lake Superior in September 2012 with Emma Higgins. We began our ride on September 11 and finished on September 28. We left from Marquette, Michigan, and ended in the same city. We rode around the lake clockwise, riding the peninsula first, traveling through Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ontario and then back to Michigan. The entire week we were in Canada it rained, but the lush woods and More

A Great Scenic Trip

We were on the Lake Superior Circle Tour September 10-18, 2012. We pulled our fifth wheels and traveled counterclockwise from Marquette, Michigan. Sibley Peninsula, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park was our favorite camping place. A grey wolf ventured into our camp, but left in a hurry when we came outdoors. Our least favorite camping place was Two Harbors, Minnesota, where they put our two fifth wheels into spots that were probably More

Michigan Was Like a Picture

Went in September 2012. Missed the turnoff to the Amethyst Mine because of a big truck on Highway 17. Too bad! Loved the Hungry Moose Restaurant in Schreiber, Ontario. The color was fantastic! No red until Michigan, lots of variety of yellows and green there. Michigan was like a picture. The small towns weren’t that interesting in Ontario. Some of the road is very tree-lined, but that’s probably a good More
