Fun at Chik Wauk

     I recently had the opportunity to spend some time at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. .  One day last week they were in need of a volunteer and on Friday I brought my cousin and his girlfriend there for a visit.  Each time I go there I am more and more impressed with how awesome it is.

     There is so much to do and see at Chik-Wauk you can’t get through it in a day.  There are films to watch about people who used to live on the Gunflint Trail and about resorts that are no longer here.  There are flip books to look through about plants, animals and more.  There are tons of books to peruse with historical information and photos to look at as well. The displays are incredible and even the gifts in the gift shop are works of art.

     Outside the grounds of Chik-Wauk are just as wonderful as the inside of the building.  The hiking trails are terrific and take you through some beautiful areas.  There are benches to sit on, picnic tables to lunch on and lots of places to relax and let the beauty of the area surround you.

     I’m glad I have a membership to the Gunflint Trail Historical Society because I can get into the museum for free and bring along a guest.  As things slow down here at Voyageur I’m sure I’ll find myself spending more time next door at Chik-Wauk.  Hopefully I’ll see you there too!
