Hit the Road

     If you’re looking for something to do today then why not hop in the car and head up the Gunflint Trail?  The annual meeting of the Gunflint Trail Historical Society will be held today at noon at Chik-Wauk Lodge.  This is a great opportunity to mingle with neighbors, learn about the Gunflint Trail and check out the progress of the Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center before it opens in 2010.

     When the Chik-Wauk project first started the opening date of 2010 sounded like a long ways off.  Yet here it is just around the corner after years of planning and work.  It’s going to be a fabulous place with lots of great displays and information about the Gunflint Trail.  You can find out more about the museum at today’s picnic and meeting.

     If you’re not able to attend the meeting but still want to learn more about it then be sure to check out the website.  We’re always looking for more members for the Gunflint Trail Historical Society.

What you need to bring:  your own chair if possible, parking is available at the County 81 Landing with a shuttle to the building.
Enjoy a picnic lunch provided by the Gunflint Trail Historical Society  and hear our guest speaker, Todd Lindahl talk about old railroads from the Arrowhead region.  Take a few minutes to walk the developing trails.  This will be our last picnic inside the museum as it will be full of displays in 10 short months!
Also for the first time!!! shirts and caps with the Chik-Wauk logo will be available for purchase so bring your pocketbook!
