Andy and I took a three night mind clearing trip to Canada’s Lake Superior Provincial Park, located two hours north of Sault Ste. Marie, MI.
Day 1: When we arrived the lake was like absolute glass! Barely any movement at the shoreline. Sunny. 70 degrees during the day…50 at night.
Day 2: The guy at the camping store told us this trail was “brutal”. He was right. Today we hiked 9 miles along the Lake Superior shoreline from the mouth of the Baldhead River to Ryolite Cove. We are thankful for another sunny, warm, and very dry day for walking miles over rock, roots, and unstable boulders.
Day 3: Today we walked 9 miles back to the Baldhead River. Andy is already thinking about when we will return again…I am thinking that while it is insanely beautiful, two times is enough to walk this stretch of extreme up and down rock and cliff hiking, not to mention that it is so rare to have three completely dry days to walk along the lake shore.
Our last night we made a fantastic backpacking dinner: quick cook brown rice with wild mushroom and freeze dried peas!
