The Most Impressive Thing

Terry & I finished doing the Circle Tour with our truck pulling a Pop-Up Camper Trailer.

September 25, 2012 – We began our trip from our home in Ham Lake, Minnesota, with our first stop (N/N) being Porcupine State Park. This is a beautiful Park and we had an excellent campsite.

September 26 – Then on to the Keweenaw Peninsula which proved to be very interesting. We overnighted at F.J. McLain State Park, another beautiful park on the shores of Lake Superior.

September 27 – We continued our trip around the lake meeting friends for lunch at the Vierling Brewery in Marquette. Overnighted at Van Riper State Park (another well-kept park).

September 28 – Toured the Munising area doing several hikes and Pasties at Muldoon’s (Very Good). Overnighted at a private campground on Otter Lake (Friendly folks).

September 29 – Back to Munising for more hiking and the Pictured Rock Cruise (colors were gorgeous). Overnighted at Otter Lake.

September 30 – Back on the road, over the bridge at Sault Ste. Marie and into Canada. Not as many sights, but plenty of trees and water. Overnighted – Private campground at Neys, Ontario. It was somewhat disappointing that most of the Provincial Parks were closed.

October 1 – On the road with a stop at the Terry Fox Memorial (Very Impressive) then onto Thunder Bay before heading south into the U.S. We stopped at Naniboujou Restaurant (an excellent restaurant) for lunch. Overnighted at Beaver Bay where we have a lodge.

October 3 – Return to our home in Ham Lake. The most impressive thing about our trip was the vivid red and gold colors on the foliage and the Friendly Folks.
