I'm a conscientious objector to most things social media, but I have really enjoyed how Instagram connects lovers of the outdoors in a sort of virtual hiking club. Today I had just one of those experiences and it has inspired me to reflect today on something very familiar, yet underappreciated by most users of our treasured national parks & forests.
As true lovers of all things Lake Superior, it was high time we traveled the North Shore to see what it had to offer.
We were not disappointed.
Unlike some Great Lakes highways that hug the coast the highway up the North Shore pops in and out of towns along the coast, but does not always have like views. However, what it lacks in some areas it gains in its opportunities for short, free expeditions along the way at the state parks and marinas in the small towns.
