We started at Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan and went clockwise. Our first night we stayed at the lighthouse at Whitefish Point. It was lots of fun staying the the quarters of the crew! Then we proceeded on to Munising. Disappointed that our cruise was rained out, but made up for it by going to the Quincy Copper Mine on our way up to our next stop in Copper Harbor. We continued our circle clockwise. It made it much easier for us to take advantage of pull offs. Ashland murals are a must-see, and busy Duluth is a great place for lunch. Be sure to stop by as many falls there are to see — they are spectacular! The World’s Best Donuts are in Grand Marais, MN. The last stop for us in the U.S. was Grand Portage where we stopped at the museum. It was interesting to learn about the fur trade and the docent was great! Canada was a great drive. So wild. Wonderful places to stop and hike. We stayed in Thunder Bay, Rossport and Wawa. All at very rustic places, in very serene settings. We found great little places to eat with such friendly folks. Weather was rainy, fog and a little snow, and we did see some color in the trees. Disappointed no moose sightings! We ended our tour back in Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan and we were lucky enough to see a freighter go through the locks! We were also amazed at the number of people we met along the way who were on the Circle Tour as well, and hearing where they started and direction they were going. Looking forward to try another lake circle tour!
