My wife (Jen) and I planned this trip to celebrate our 1 year anninversary of marriage. This was her first trip to the boundary waters, and my second....but my first trip off the gunflint. We departed two days prior to our entry date so we had time to take in some sights.

Friday, June 04, 2010

We packed up the car and started to make our way up Friday morning. We stopped at the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in Hayward, WI, then pressed on to Duluth, where we spent the night. We took a stroll by the lakefront and happened to see one the ships come into port.
