A Nice Hike

     I don’t think people realize how many nice hikes there are on the Gunflint Trail.  There are trails all over and if you’re as absent minded as I am then you can hike the same trail over and over yet not know which way to go or where you are going.

     I hiked the same trail two times last fall.  The first day I got off of the trail and didn’t end up where I wanted to be.  The second day I figured out which way I was suppose to go.  Fast forward five months and I’m back at the same trail just as confused as ever. 

     You would think I would be a cheap date.  You could purchase one movie and I could watch the movie over and over and not remember it, right?  Wrong.  For some odd reason I can remember every detail about a movie or a book right when I start watching or reading it again.  I don’t like to re-read or watch something twice because it isn’t half as entertaining.

     I don’t know what it is about hiking trails but Tara and I were entertained for four hours as we circled through the woods.  We found the way in, followed some paths and made our way back out again.  I couldn’t tell you where we were on the map but we had a good time.

     The grouse were drumming and the peep frogs peeping in the swamps.  We saw a couple of mallards and spotted lots of moose and wolf scat along the trail.  There were moose prints everywhere but no antlers to be found.

     All in all it was a nice hike.  One of the many on the Gunflint Trail.  If you’re looking for somewhere to go hiking then come on up and visit us at Voyageur.     I wish I could say I would point you in the right direction, but I’m not so sure I would know.  That’s what makes hiking such a fun adventure for me.
