Autumn Glory

We decided to allow two weeks so we could do everything we wanted and that was plenty of time. We took our 33′ fifth wheel trailer and were worried about campgrounds due to fall colors, but had no issues finding a spot to camp. There were a few campgrounds that closed Labor Day so I did do some calling ahead once we were close. I did not pre-book camp sites. More

Beautiful Lake Superior

We traveled clockwise around the lake, starting in Munising, MI. We then traveled west to Duluth, MN, entered Canada and stayed in Thunder Bay. We then traveled to Terrace Bay, Wawa, and Sault Ste. Marie. We backtracked a little after that to hit the Tahquamenon Falls before voyaging back around east side of Lake Michigan. We loved the fall color and it even snowed on us in Wawa! The lake More

A Superior 40th Anniversary

We have spent 40 years vacationing on Michigan’s Lake Superior shore and thought it was time to see the rest of the Lake. We had a high top Ford Transit van outfitted for camping and on September 1st headed out for the Keweenaw Peninsula. We spent three days rediscovering Copper Harbor and then headed for Madeline Island. Camped two nights on the island, explored Bayfield then headed for Minnesota. We More

34 Days by Bicycle

Everyone had been warning us that a storm was coming with gale-force winds, so we asked about a place to stay. The guy at the gas station answered our question about the campground, but then pointed out Superior Hotel More

Can’t wait to go back!

I’m lucky enough to live on the Keweenaw Peninsula, so started here and went clockwise. Tried to hit most of the renowned rock picking beaches and though the lake was rough most days, found a good bunch of agates at the roadside beaches on the MN north shore and near Grand Marais, MI. Most amazing to me was Split Rock Lighthouse (MN) and the restored keeper’s home, the views from More

Circle Tour: Bucket List Must!

We traveled from Big Lake, Minnesota to Bayfield, WI on our first day. The fall colors were just starting and we were able to take in the quaint town of Bayfield including an enjoyable excursion via the ferry to Madeline Island. Innkeeper Jack, was very knowledgeable and gracious at the Pilot House B&B. Big Bay, Michigan was our next stop. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to stay in a working More
