Lake Superior Road Trip
We threw our kayaks on the car top and did a big road trip to Lake Superior in August 2015. We drove 5850 miles in just over a month, hitting 11 states before it was over. There was much to do along the way. We visited friends and family in Montana, North Dakota, the Twin Cities, Iowa and Illinois. We toured sights such as the Little Big Horn Battlefield, copper mines in Montana and Michigan, the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY, and caves in the Black Hills. We stumbled on unexpected delights at Bayfield WI, the wild and scenic St. Croix River, and the sand hills near Valentine NE. It was a good test of what retirement might feel like.
