Two weeks ago we spent several days up on the North Shore of Lake Superior. I did a couple of phenomenal bike rides on various forest roads in Superior National Forest. We also did some hiking on the Superior Hiking Trail, and spent a good deal of time just relaxing and enjoying the various moods of Lake Superior.
I was totally uninterested in writing up a long detailed narrative on my rides and the rest of our week. So, I'll just share some images from the time we spent up there.
I will say this...The rides were tough, with a lot of climbing that ranged anywhere where from an easy 5%-7% grade all the way up to 20% in some spots, but they were a good deal of fun despite the voracious deer flies. Now I can believe those stories about bugs being so bad they can drive a person mad. I believe I may have let out a couple of angry maddening screams myself more than once along the way. The hiking we did was amazing, and as always Lake Superior itself was phenomenally beautiful.
As of late I have continued to develop my on going relationship with the new single track trails at Elm Creek Park Reserve.
I hope you enjoy the images.
