I wish everyone could visit the Gunflint Trail in the winter. It is so beautiful up here that once you’re here you will have a difficult time leaving. There are so many things to do and even when you live up here there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do it all. But that’s okay because if you find yourself outside when it’s dark then you have discovered what really makes the Gunflint Trail special.
The winter night sky on the Gunflint Trail is utterly amazing. There are so many stars twinkling in the sky you just have to get out and see it. The constellations seem to pop out in front of you and before you know it you’re naming them all. The air is so still and quiet it’s as if you are floating in space right next to the stars.
If you have always wanted to be a star then come on up to the Gunflint Trail, go outside at night and see what I’m talking about. Believe me, it isn’t the cold air that takes your breath away.
