On September the 5th we completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour clockwise from Duluth to Duluth. We took 12 days for our tour and had overnights at: Duluth, MN; Virginia, MN; Grand Marais, MN; Grand Portage, MN; Thunder Bay, ON; Wawa, ON; Strongs, MI; Munising, MI; Hancock, MI; Bayfield, WI; and Duluth, MN.
Some of our favorite experiences were: seeing the massive Hull-Rust-Mahoning open pit mine in Hibbing; watching a laker enter the taconite port at Two Harbors while picnicking on smoked lake fish and cheeses; our trip up and back on the Gunflint Trail with burgers and beers on the back deck of ‘Way of the Wilderness’ outfitters; finding our own Amethyst at the Amethyst Mine Panorama in Dorian, ON; our visit to the majestic Ouimet Canyon, ON; a wade in the lake at Terrace Bay, ON; the Bushplane Museum at Sault Ste. Marie, ON; beautiful (and solemn) Whitefish Point Light Station and Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, MI; and waterfalls all around the lake! Now, to sort out the hundreds of photos.
