Like many others, I had done the circle tour around Lake Superior in the past. Each time I found that there were places on or near the circle route that I wanted to check out instead of just riding the standard path. Each time I told myself that I would dig a little deeper and spend a little more time enjoying the area the next time I rode it. Well . . . this time is finally that "next time". I just spent 8 1/2 days checking things out while circling the lake. The result is that I had a wonderful ride and that I was able to look into a lot of history and visit interesting and scenic places. The scenery around Lake Superior is spectacular but I don't think that many photographs can capture the true splendor. As usual, I will share photos, stories, and background information that will help someone else plan their own ride around the lake and perhaps make it a little richer as well. As usual, I will be posting a comprehensive GPS file to share. Hope you enjoy the ride, and for those that have done it before, I hope it brings back some pleasant memories!
