It Was a Great Trip

My son, Patrick, and I rode our motorcycles around Lake Superior in July of this year. He was living in Caledonia, Minnesota, and I live in Faribault, Minnesota. We met at Slippery’s in Wabasha, Minnesota, on the morning of July 10 and rode north to Grand Marais, Minnesota. We spent the night there at the Harbor House Inn and Pie Place Café and proceeded across the Canadian border around the More

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. More

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

The More Time You Have, The Better

My husband and I made the Circle September 8-19, 2012. We started in Duluth, Minnesota. We went north to Grand Marais, into Canada and Thunder Bay. We only had hotel reservations for the first two nights, after that we just stopped wherever was interesting. We did stay couple nights in a few places. We lucked out with absolutely beautiful, perfect weather! We were a little early for peak foliage, although More

Fond Memories

We are preparing to make our third Circle Tour of Lake Superior this summer. Our first Circle Tour was our honeymoon in July 1991. We got out the scrapbook and repeated the trip for our 10th anniversary in 2001. We decided to do it again this year for our 20th anniversary. Our first trip was unplanned (after our reservations got fouled up elsewhere). It began with a simple picnic trip More
