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 to Batchawana Bay from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Five and a half days later we had circled Lake Superior! The second trip was done in eight days. This summer we’re allowing 10 days in order to take in some new areas while revisiting our favorite spots.
All our Circle Tours have been counterclockwise starting from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. We’ve really enjoyed Grand Marais (Minnesota and Michigan) and have fond memories of Marathon, Ontario; Munising, Michigan; and the Keweenaw Peninsula.
