Superior - 2 nights on the SHT in Minnesota
I'm not sure why I forgot to post this back in September, but here it is. A quick weekend trip on the Superior Hiking Trail from Castle Danger to Split Rock. I wasn't in any hurry and spent a lot of time enjoying the many waterfalls and beautiful weekend.https://vimeo.com/75191333 The video tells the tale better than a narrative can.

Nice! That photo ... Blueberry Hill?
Nice job Art. You gotta smile more.
"Nice job Art. You gotta smile more.I know! This is my zen and I was having a great time, there's something wrong with my face. it must be permanently scarred from work ;-)
"Nice! That photo ... Blueberry Hill?"Sure is.
Between you, shug, and fronky, (don't know real names) you make the SHT look awesome and I want to hike it! Thanks for sharing. What was that song? I really liked it?Thanks,James
It is a beautiful trail, I've only hiked sections as getting away even for a couple weekends a year sans family is tough. It looks nothing like you expect from Minnesota.The song is Wicked Game, by James Vincent McMorrow, very cool rendition IMHO.
James,Here are a few more pictures to whet your appetite. I did this trip with Mark, from Iowa, who frequents these forums. He can tell you that it is gorgeous and plenty tough.http://www.flickr.com/photos/d1948n/sets/72157631691988454/
David, one word "wow". Fantastic pics, the colors are absolutely stunning. Next year I need to plan to hike a couple sections that first week of Oct.Art
All of this is making my Yooper heart ache to be back home by The Big Lake!
I was secretly hoping for a winter TR when I saw this report pop up. Alas, any TR from the SHT makes me smile. Thanks for sharing.
@Harrison: "Yooper" ... I'm not, but it does leave me wondering how many BPLers understand that term:-)@Sam: I'll try to give salve for that hope if I can get a suitable crew together later this winter. 30" of new snow uphill from Two Harbors this week.
I've spent a lot of time on a snowmobile in the UP, not only do I know what a Yooper is, but also a Troll.
I assume that's a bear and not your lovely dog at 3:07 (left of river, movement left to right). Almost didn't notice.
Yes it is. I'm pretty sure that he ends up doing double the mileage that I do. He runs up ahead and back behind, and back up ahead . . . He's well trained and knows not to get too far from me, and comes right back when I call him. I do keep him on leash when I near a State Park or somewhere that will be populated.
