Don’t Worry, We Bought a Calendar


Our reluctance to leave the UP is equally matched by a desire to see Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior and so we’re off again, up Highway 61 (yes, the same one immortalized by Minnesota’s own Bob Dylan). Soon it begins to cut through red rocks and often looks like the drive through Mendocino in Northern California with roadway bridges over cascading water feeding into a huge body of water. But that isn’t the Pacific Ocean out there, just off the highway. It’s Lake Superior.

As we hit the heart of the north shore, we meander up the shoreline through towns of varying cuteness and then start looking for a place to stay. We can’t quite figure out why a Thursday, non-holiday evening should be so busy. Then we realize it’s Saturday. We’ve been two days off for a week now….We finally find room at the Cascade Lodge and check in just as a ranger talk about wolves is starting around a campfire out back, complete with s’mores.
