North Shore Thanksgiving

For the fifth year in a row, I spent the Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends at the wonderful Lutsen Resort, on the North Shore of Lake Superior. If you have not had the opportunity to explore this gorgeous wilderness area in the heart of the country, put it on your bucket list. Here are a few photos from the weekend to whet your appetite:


Nothing like a Lake Superior sunset.

Saturday was a gorgeous day to hike the Oberg Loop section of the Superior Hiking Trail.

There’s nothing like a lakeside bonfire under the moonlight!

And yes, this resort is the site of my niece’s famous wedding in a blizzard.

Friday Photos: Fall Colors in Minnesota

Last week my sister and I drove some friends visiting from England up to Lutsen, a ski resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We had heard the fall colors were peaking up there, so even though there were no hotel vacancies in the areas, and the RT drive would be close to 500 miles, we decided to turn it into a very long day trip. As you can see from these photos, it was worth the drive.
