The trail that makes up the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota. This is the first time I’ve been on the Gunflint Trail after hearing about it for a long time. There are a lot of moose crossing signs and moose lookouts, however my moose sightings are still at an unimpressive zero.

This is a great little cafe/bar on the Gunflint Trail. It’s everything you’d imagine a little side restaurant in the north woods of Minnesota to be. All though my chili was luke warm, the hot chocolate is some of the best I’ve ever had. Perfect little place to stop into after dog sledding at the Bearskin Lodge just down the Gunflint trail.

This weekend Katie and I hit the road up the north shore of Minnesota to spend the weekend in Grand Marais. Part of the trip was dedicated to the Gunflint trail and the Bearskin lodge to go dog sledding. I had no idea what to expect but it was pretty much amazing. All the dogs were very well taken care of by our expert musher, Erik, and very excited to pull us around for a little while.
Master musher and all around awesome guy, Erik Simula, was our guide on this dog sledding adventure. Here I was able to snap a picture of all three of us while flying across a frozen lake. It’s great to see that he’s having just as much fun as we are. This is a man who truly loves his job.

Just got back from a weekend in Northwest Minnesota at Katie’s family’s cabin. I forgot my g11 but had my handy iPhone and the Camera+ app along and that’s all I needed.
This place, lets call it Uff-Da Souvenirs, is just outside Bemidji, Minnesota and has every possible ‘sotan gift you can imagine.
