Camp, Kayak and Golf…

We began our trip at Pictured Rocks with a day of hiking and a late afternoon of kayaking at dusk on Kingston Lake. The next day we golfed in Brimley overlooking the lake and the “1,000 footers.” We camped in “The Soo” to the pleasant sounds of ship horns heading into and out of the locks. After a morning of more ship viewing and stocking up on provisions, we had More

Everything I Had Dreamed Of

I completed the circle tour by vehicle, specifically in my Jeep Cherokee, in 2014. I started by driving through Wisconsin. I made it to the north shore and found Cornucopia. This little town will forever be in my top favorite destinations. I found it by accident as the road I was on turned into a detour due to construction. There was a motel on the corner and next to it, More

Really Enjoyed the Trip

My wife and I just completed the Circle Tour of Lake Superior. Almost 3,500 miles of driving from our home in Kansas City to Duluth, Minnesota, where we began the tour. We really enjoyed the trip immensely and here are some highlights: We visited the Fairlawn and Glensheen homes in Duluth as well as tried out some local food from Clyde’s and Pickwick. We traveled the North Shore, stopping at More

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

It Was Gorgeous

I completed the Circle Tour July 24-28. (1) Bond Falls Campground. I left Aitkin in the morning, traveled through Wisconsin, and set up camp at Bond Falls campground at sunset. This was mainly a travel day. (2) Sault St. Marie, Kewadin Casino. In the morning, I checked out the Bond Falls, bought Harley-Davidson sweatshirts in Marquette for the wife and me, and stopped by Tahquamenon Falls. Soon after leaving, I More

A Couple Highlights of Our Trip

We are writing because we have recently completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour. We took our trip July 2-7, 2011.

Our total round trip amounted to 1,733 miles. A couple highlights of our trip were when we stayed in Batchawana Bay at the Lake Shore More
