Circle Tour 30/60

2016 was the year I was to turn 60 and my darling daughter and best traveling companion turned 30, so we thought we would mark the occasion with a mother/daughter trip! We asked for advice via Facebook for the best travel destination. We researched areas throughout the United States and ultimately decided we would do the Lake Superior Circle Tour– and we are so glad we did!! We decided that More

Camping around the lake

We started clockwise around the lake at Duluth. Since we like to take our time and not be on a schedule we opted to camp and not make the suggested hotel reservations. Before leaving, we purchased a MN State Parks pass and were able to camp at all the State Parks going up the North Shore of MN. We never had a problem finding a camp spot. Minnesota makes it More

Our Circle Tour

We have a place in the forest near Mellen, WI, so we started at the Northern Great Lakes Visitors Center in Ashland, WI. It’s such an interesting place. So much information! We drove clockwise to Duluth, and on to Lutsen, MN. Stayed at the Eagle Ridge Resort. Great place, rode the gondola, and the chair lift. Hiked and rode the Alpine Slide. Not bad for “old people”!! Stayed 2 nights, More

Wonder adventure

We took our time, sixteen days in total. We drove from Battle Creek, Michigan to Mackinaw City on our first day and then crossed the big bridge and drove into Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario and to Batchawana Bay on the 2nd day. The Superior Provincial Park was gorgeous, particularly the Sand River waterfalls. Our next stop was Rossport where we stayed at a lovely B & B called The Willows. 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 had no idea how awesome this trip would be!!

My husband and I love to travel and explore the world (We were engaged in Jelly Fish Lake in Palau). However, since having children, such travel has become difficult. Our boys were 7, 4, and 1 when we bought a 12 passenger van and decided to show them the driveable world now and deal with the rest later. Our first trip was around Lake Superior (counter-clock-wise). 8 days, mostly hotels, More
