Over the past few days, the subject of the Superior Hiking Trail has come up in conversation. We see a lot of folks who are making the hike from one end to the other. Sometimes they are doing it segment by segment.
Father’s Day is not just for fathers. Remember there are also a lot of grandfathers out there.
I spent a little time at the store this fine Sunday morning and decided it was time to get out and enjoy the area. I drove home to get my two best friends and off we went.
Spring is finally here in Grand Marais! The deciduous trees are starting to green up and by the end of next week, it will be looking really good.
Yesterday’s Star Tribune had a section on The Best of Minnesota. It is really nice to see that a few of the Grand Marais attractions made the cut. The New York Times has also taken notice of another of our local attractions.
We received this note from Nichole Borson of the Tofte Ranger District this morning. We will continue to post more ice out information as we get it.
The weather really warmed up yesterday and now we wait for the ice to go out on the lakes.
Those who know me know that I am from the New Ulm area. This is a beautiful town in a valley formed by the Minnesota River. I spent many hours fishing, hiking canoeing and camping on the Minnesota River and it’s tributaries.
The snow is finally receding on the Gunflint Trail (although the lakes still have plenty of ice).
This is Minnesota fishing opener weekend and it is also the weekend that many take their first foray into the BWCA.
