Missing Link EP to Ham Lake with Old Scout
It had been at least 3 years since I had been in Grand Marais and up the Gunflint and I was feeling like the prodigal son returning home. What a wonderful, friendly beautiful area it is there.
Arriving at the outfitters, we were shown our bunkhouse:
which was tastefully designed inside:
They even have a wilderness basketball court:
Now before I go on, I have to say here and now that Andy and Sue - the owners of Tuscarora Lodge and Outfitters - are two of the finest people you would want to get to know. They run a first class operation and are staffed by the friendliest and most professional folks you'd want to do business with. If you are planning to head up the Gunflint, definitely check them out.
After settling in, We then went off to The Gunflint Lodge for a great buffet dinner looking out over Gunflint Lake.
Back to Tuscarora just in time for the “show” at the lodge dining hall.
The staff and guests were an awesome and responsive audience. For a snippet of songs and a “review”, check out Tuscarora’s blog at:
We got in the “meet and greet” and a photo op of Andy, Sue, myself and their great family:
And to top it off, the staff presented me with an awesome jar of freshly made wild blueberry jam!
Finally it was off to the bunkhouse to rest up for the next day’s paddle.
