Mike and Bob’s excellent Circle Tour Ride

Reading the 2021 Lake Superior Travel Guide brought back fond memories of a motorcycle trip my friend Bob and I took back in 2011 (yes, that long ago – how time flies). We departed Eureka, MO early morning on September 9, riding our motorcycles, me on my trusty FJR1300 and Bob on his trusty ST1300. The evening of the 10th we overnighted in Spooner, WI and the next day we More

Our Amazing Circle Tour

The lighthouses and waterfalls were spectacular. Amnicon Falls, Gooseberry Falls, Tahquamemon Falls were great. The Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point on a rainy, windy day reminded us just how stormy Lake Superior can be. We took the sunset cruise at Pictured Rocks and were on the cruise ship when a family of four were rescued from the rocky coastline. Favorite lighthouse- Split Rock Lighthouse Ruby & Bill Dow, Mauston, WI

Completing the Tour, Canadian Side

When contemplating where to go for fall color viewing, Lake Superior came to mind. We decided on an excursion to the Canadian side, the only part of the Big Lake we had not seen on previous travels. Using the Lake Superior Travel Guide along with other sources, we planned a seven-day trip for the last week of September. We started from Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and drove counter clockwise through More

Circling the Pond

This is our first long adventure with our “new” Little Guy teardrop-style camper. We enjoyed being off the ground, dry and warm during the mostly damp days of June 24 – July 7. Our major interests were fly fishing, canoeing and finding EarthCaches, but the tour guide led us to other treasures including many well-done visitor center displays. Our tour began in Grand Marais, Minnesota, where we spent two nights at More

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. The weather was pleasantly chilly which was a change from Arkansas’ hot weather. As we were planning for cold we did not even think about mosquitoes. At Whitefish Point, one of our favorite stops, along with staying in a lighthouse, they have man-eating More

A Great Trip!

I, along with my husband Kurt and two of our friends, rode the Circle Tour on Honda Gold Wing motorcycles. It was a lot of fun, as well as educational! Favorite spots include Whitefish Point, Michigan, which has a still-functioning lighthouse. It is close to the site where the Edmund Fitzgerald went down in a storm on November 10, 1975, with none of the crew surviving. The Great Lakes Shipwreck More

Best Trip With Son Bob!

Amazing adventure! Highlight was the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point. Pictured Rocks is amazing. The Canadian drive was unbelievably beautiful and memorable. I was surprised that the Canadian section is very much like driving through a small, very rocky mountain range. I’m 86 years old and wished I would have done this long ago.

A Trip We Will Never Forget

We’d like to join the Lake Superior Circle Tour Club! On Monday, Sept. 5, 2016, my husband and I left California to start a 7,800 mile road trip, with the highlight being circling Lake Superior, the only Great Lake we hadn’t seen. We arrived in Duluth on Tuesday. Sept 13. Our first stop was the Lake Superior Outlet Store where we bought the Lake Superior Travel Guide and the Lake More
