Clearwater Lake With My Wife
Tawney and I left Minnetonka at around noon with our boat in tow and headed for Clearwater Lodge off the Gunflint Trail. Made it through the traffic in Duluth without much of a problem. Once we got past Two Harbors the weather turned to fog and drizzle and by the time we turned onto the Gunflint Trail it was a steady light rain. We found Clearwater Lodge and checked in to our B&B room at around 6pm. What a beautiful place! Took a few minutes to explore the property and headed up to Trail Center for dinner just as the sun began to peek out from the clouds. Dinner was very good and we washed it down with a few beers before we headed back to the lodge. On the way back we stopped and made the short hike up to the top of Honeymoon Bluff to see the sunset. The panoramic view of several lakes was a nice way to end the day and to set the tone for the beauty of the next several days.
