    Klay, Leon & I hauled some little bikes up North of Grand Marais to do a couple nights camping and forest road riding recently. The brisk Autumn weather combined with the Fall scenery made for a very enjoyable small trip. Here are some photos to share of Northeastern Minnesota.

    Heading up the Gunflint trail.

    Some of the scenes may duplicate in no particular order.... since there are more than one person and more than one camera involved.

    Time to head back home.

    For clarification; that is a picture of a shack I took on the way back home. It is not my home. :lol3

    We've had a big stretch of some really nice days. Lots of excellent images there, fellas ! I dig that fish shack at Stony Point. Glad you had a good trip.
