While up North, Marty and I were able to escape twice to run on the Superior Trail. We drove 3 miles up the hill from our cabin to where the Trail crossed the highway.
The first day, we ran north. This took us above Caribou Lake for several incredible views of the lake and several views of Lake Superior. The trail was incredible: soft, bug-less, and single-track.
On our second run, we headed south from the highway toward Lake Agnes. As we ran, I commented to Marty that it felt like we were nearing a lake. Within less than a minute, it appeared in front of us. We ran along the lake until we reached a point of land jutting out into the lake. No houses on the lake; not even a cabin.
My next goal: to run the Superior Trail from Canada to Duluth. Someone must have done it already. There must be a record time. Anyone else interested? I think it would have to be done in the spring or fall to avoid the heat and the bugs. This week would have been perfect.
