Minnesota’s North Shore

After a gorgeous few days in Pukaskwa National Park, we continued southwest, back into the U.S. to continue to explore Lake Superior along Minnesota’s North Shore.  There is so much to see and do that it was difficult to decide which attractions to see this time, and which ones to leave for a future visit.  …

Pukaskwa National Park

Around the lake we go!  From Sault Ste. Marie, we headed through the border into Canada (no problems at the border crossing) and continued north and west to Pukaskwa National Park.  Now, before you mis-read this entire blog post, we will go on and correct your pronunciation.  It is pronounced puck-a-saw.  We have no idea …

Sault Ste. Marie, MI

We left on Saturday morning for a two week trip around the north shore of Lake Superior.  Wow, does it ever feel good to be back on the road!  After traveling the entire year last year, we started to feel more at home on the road than in our actual home.  Being stationary again has …

We will get to all that, but let’s start with where we stayed.  There …

Mammoth Cave National Park

We are wrapping up a few days at Mammoth Cave National Park in southern Kentucky.  Since it is somewhat close to home, we have been here several times before, and because it is one of our favorite places to visit in Kentucky, it was one of the first places we thought of when we knew …

Cloudland Canyon State Park

It seems that every time we have two days to explore a place, one of those days is rainy and a complete washout.  That was today in Cloudland Canyon State Park in northwestern Georgia.  Luckily, we knew the forecast, so yesterday we were able to check out a couple of the overlooks and hike to …

Manatee Springs State Park

Everyone has heard about winter manatee viewing in Florida springs, but most of the time you hear about Silver Springs or Blue Springs.  We are sure those places are amazing, but they are also EXTREMELY difficult to get into, especially for folks like us who don’t plan months in advance.  Knowing that those places probably …

Big Lagoon and Perdido Key

Continuing east, we have spent a couple of nights at Big Lagoon State Park.  This is a sister park to Perdido Key State Park, so our camping fee allowed us into both to explore and enjoy!  They are both small parks, and other than a couple of hiking trails, we feel like we got a …
