An Excellent Trip

My husband and I completed the Circle Tour September 7-14, 2013. We started from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (where we live), and went clockwise around the Lake. (Several years ago we started from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and went counterclockwise as far as Terrace Bay, Ontario, but didn’t have time to go all the way.) The trip this month was a fulfillment of a years-long desire. We started off in More

Would Absolutely Do It Again

For my partner’s 50th birthday, we thought that there was no better way to celebrate than to ride around Lake Superior. It was a trip that we had read about and thought sounded interesting. We were only concerned with time – how long would it take for us to realistically complete this tour, starting in Toronto and enjoying ourselves along the way? We finally decided to go for it, and More

What a Trip!

We left on August 8, returned on August 21. From Chicago to Marquette, clockwise around the Lake. What a trip! Spent the night in Bayfield, Grand Portage, although did not go to Isle Royale. On to Thunder Bay, Wawa, of course, Sault Ste. Marie. It was all so lovely. Just looked at some of the pictures. They don’t do it justice. Just wish we had done this when we were More

Wished We Had More Time

We began our trip around Lake Superior on Thursday, July 25, 2013, and completed our circumvention of Lake Superior on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013. We traveled clockwise beginning in Two Harbors, MN. The border crossing agent told us at the Pigeon River border crossing that we were hitting Ontario during their coldest week that summer. We had rain and cold temps through quite a bit of our trip through Ontario. More

Many Favorite and Memorable Spots

I joined a group of 20 women to bicycle around Lake Superior. Our tour, arranged by the company WomanTours, which began and ended in Duluth, Minnesota, was scheduled for July 8 to August 2, 2013. Our first actual day of bicycling was July 9th and our last day of riding was August 1st. We began by traveling east with our first stop being Bayfield, Wisconsin. After that we spent 11 days More

Our Best Experiences

We recently completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour by car as a married couple. June 18 through June 26 were the dates, start to finish, of our adventure. Our best experiences were as follows: The Pictured Rocks Cruise at Munising, Michigan. The mineral-stained cliffs were awe-inspiring with Mother Nature at her best! The boat tour provided us with up-close views at eye level as well as a verbal geological lesson More

We Loved Our Trip

We traveled around Lake Superior from June 21 through June 30, 2013. We loved our trip around Lake Superior. It was very foggy in the beginning which was great because it kept the mosquitoes away. Fort William and Kakabeka Falls were our first stop in Ontario, and they were amazing! We also enjoyed the picture rocks at Agawa Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park. The Michigan state parks were nice, More

Best Trip We Have Ever Made in Our RV

We had a great time doing the Circle Tour. We made it a wonderful family caravan camping trip, which our son-in-law and daughter planned in January. We laughed that the fog off the lake made us feel like we were traveling in the clouds. We loved Kakabeka Falls, the Amethyst Mines and Fort William. We stopped along the roadside and built a Inukshuk family from the rock, which I think More

A Short Synopsis

September 2010 I spoke with some nice ladies about my interest in tenting around Lake Superior. I received much information and some printed material. Below is a short synopsis of what I have accomplished since the early ’50s. Started with my family camping the North Shore in the early ’50s; 2001 camped to Thunder Bay, Ontario, in a tent trailer; 2010, July, camped by myself in a tent and two More

This Is One Trip You Should Take

We began in Munising, Michigan (UP), went on to Keweenaw Pennisula, UP, from there on to Bayfield, Wisconsin, Apostle Islands, on to Silver Bay, Minnesota, Split Rock Lighthouse and on to Thunder Bay. Thunder Bay to Red Rock, onto Rossport, then Wawa Ontario, Sault Ste. Marie, and back to Marquette, Michigan. Our travel time was from Sept. 8 thru Sept. More
