Goodbye Gunflint Trail

It was very difficult to leave home yesterday with the sun shining and the temperature up in the 50’s.  It was a gorgeous day and it felt like and looked like September except for a little skiff of ice on the edges of a few ponds.  It was especially hard because I don’t think we will see temperatures like that on the Trail again until Spring.  I can’t imagine there are many warm days left, we have been far too lucky for there to be many more in store.  Besides, it’s almost Thanksgiving and Lutsen downhill ski resort opens and I am ready to start cross-country skiing.
