We Love Lake Superior!

We just got home from completing the Circle Tour. We along with our two best friends decided this would be a great ride on our Gold Wings.

At Whitefish Point, one of our favorite stops, along with staying in a lighthouse, they have man-eating More

Our Favorite Stops

Our favorite stops included Sleeping Giant Provincial Park in Canada (we stayed in a park cabin) and Whitefish Point (and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum) at Whitefish Point.
