Cook County Hiking Map

Before moving to Cook County about 10 years ago, I spent every long weekend and vacation I could spare in Cook County. The time of year did not matter. All that mattered was getting out of the big city and find some solitude. I bought all the hiking books I could find and searched out trail maps. In recent years I spent a …

Santa, Snow and a Sale – Coming Soon!

Here at Stone Harbor, we are awaiting our first significant snowfall – it should be coming soon!

The Best Weather of the Year – Going On Now in Grand Marais

What a weekend. If you weren’t here, you might not know what I’m talking about – you just have to come experience it to believe it. We listen to the weather in other parts of Minnesota and just smile, because it actually gets quite chilly at night around here. Hard to believe when it’s hitting the 90s in other parts …

The North Shore: Business As Usual!

Minnesota has been full of wild weather lately – including the North Shore! Even up here in Grand Marais, we’ve had challenges with internet, cell phone service, and long distance (just in case you’ve been trying to get in touch with us).  Other than that, it’s business as usual. There is a detour at the Knife River near Two Harbors, …

The Signs of Summer: Tours, Rentals, Hikes and More

Summer is in the air. The Farmer’s Market has reopened in our parking lot and this morning looking out the window we could see the Hjordis which sails out of the North House Folk School. Last weekend was also the Boreal Bird Festival over there, and a lot of the birding community made the trek to our store. In terms …
