Monday, August 04, 2014 Shayne & I left Monday morning August 4, planning to meet Peter, Sheila, Elizabeth, Karl, and his friend Chad in Duluth at the Thompson Hill Rest Area & Information Center. The most amazing view of Duluth and Lake Superior. I always know when I reach the overlook, I am going to the BWCA (or Heaven).
It is amazing that we arrived within minutes of each other. After a quick break, we were on our way to Grand Marais and the Gunflint Trail! We stopped for leeches and gas in Grand Marais, got some snacks, and started North for East Bearskin Lake Campground. We set up camp and enjoyed the evening before getting to bed early for an early start the next day.
