Fun on the Gunflint Trail

     Yesterday was a beautiful day to be on the Gunflint Trail.  The weather was perfect with a slight breeze and barely a cloud in the sky.  It was a fun day spent with family and friends.

    A group of us boated over to Chik-Wauk Lodge for the annual picnic.  The Gunflint Trail Historical Society provided guests with good food, music and an interesting presentation by the USFS.  It was a wonderful afternoon for visiting.

When we got home my kids and nieces were ready for some water fun.  We pulled out the kayaks and went exploring.  We found a bay for swimming and enjoyed floating on our backs with the sun shining on our faces. 

     It’s days like yesterday that make me feel very grateful to live at the end of the Gunflint Trail.
