Best Motorcycle Trip I’ve Been On

Our Circle Tour trip ended on Sunday, Aug. 7, 2016. The beauty of nature from Duluth to Thunder Bay to Nipigon, to Wawa, to Sault Ste. Marie was absolutely beautiful motorcycling. The roads and weather were great. We stopped at Eagle Canyon Adventures in Dorion and walked the two suspension footbridges. Old Woman Bay in the Lake Superior Provincial Park, Wawa was my favorite stop. We also visited the Canadian More

We stopped at a small caboose on the edge of town and inquired of the young attendant inside, “Where is the museum of Cabooses?” She cheerfully replied, “This is More

There’s Magic in a Trip Like This

My son and I completed a circle all the way around Gitche Gumee on a 4-day motorcycle ride. The following little narration was written by me for my son and meant only for him, at that time. Others have now seen it and some have liked it. We have gone back to the Big Lake this past summer, also in August, and rode into a few of the southern shore More
