Today the rest of our campers and counselors headed out onto the trail. They split into 2 groups and will both be out for 3 days and 2 nights. Find their picture and click on it to follow their adventures.
Superior Hiking Trail 4.1
The Superior Hiking Trail is, yet another, amazing resource that we have just a stones throw (almost) away from Camp. It is 300+ miles of hiking trail that runs all the way along the north shore of Lake Superior through the Superior National Forest. Section 4.1 (as we call it) starts in Grand Marais and goes North, taking in amazing vistas of the Big Lake and there is even a portion that goes right along the beach. The group will then arrive at Judge C. Magney State Park on Friday to be picked up and brought back to Camp. Hopefully they will get a chance to see the Devils Kettle, which is a waterfall that disappears at the bottom; it was, until recently, a mystery. Earlier this year they discovered that the water goes deep underground and then re-enters the river. It is an amazing force of nature.
Honeymoon Bluff Fishing
This group is in for a more relaxing trip this week. They drove about half way down the Gunflint Trail to a Campground on Flour Lake. Here they will set up basecamp and then start fishing. They will spend the next three days exploring the lake and finding out exactly where the fish are hiding. I am confident they will come back telling tales of incredible battles with some monster fish. The other draw of this trip is the Honeymoon Bluff, a cliff just a short distance from the campsite. Here they will get unbelievably beautiful views of the Boundary Waters, in years past our groups have spent a large portion of the trip at the bluffs and I'm sure that these guys will want to spend as much time there as possible.
