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

There are many highlights to the trip. Our favorite was sighting a bear that had More

This past summer I circled Lake Superior, mostly by canoe. My friend Jess Laxo and I left in our canoe from Marquette on June 12 and returned to Marquette on August 24. We paddled roughly 700 miles of shoreline and completed the rest of the circle by car (it’s a long story). I hope this qualifies me for a sticker. Please please please please 🙂 My favorite spots along the More
