A bunch of us went to Duluth for this 7 stake camping trip. It was a most unique trip. We spent the night in the backyard of the Carlton church building which is about 25 minutes away from Duluth. They set up a fire pit in the back. We had sparklers and s'mores and hot dogs. We saw fireworks in Duluth in a redneck area near a M&H gas station (not to be confused with H&M) and watched an incredible show while people were tailgating with actual grills and setting off
their own fireworks in the flammable field of grass
that we were sitting on. But our own people were definitely in contest for the most "unique". Highlights: Ugly Betty, baby decks of cards, flirting contest including bets, cat in the hat, sparklers, sleeping in the backyard of the church, grasshopper watching, nicknames, tylenol pm, gorgeous weather, surprise - the Superior Hiking Trail, SPF 80, waterfallman, and this weird list could go on forever.
The girls at the falls: Amy, random girl, and me.
Our little hiking group: Brandon, me, Katie B., Ryan
Pondering existence. Let it be noted that my shirt says "My lips hurt real bad". It became a self-fulfilling prophecy. I have a bag of sunflower seeds in my hand. Which is what I have been taught to eat when outside by my dear old Dad. However, when one forgets ones chapstick and eats salty nuts, ones lips do indeed hurt real bad. I ended up buying chapstick at the redneck gas station. Unfortunately the only flavor it came in was spearmint. What the crap!
Hotel Duluth. Here we have a random chair. Put in middle of nature. I call it the Ghost chair and it honestly freaked me out just a little bit.
Ryan, chilling with the fish.
told her to back the heck up.
So get this... we went out in search of a fabulous hike. Tried to find some trail called Munger. Never did find it but we did find a drive through church. We decided to pull over and just hike up some random road and what the freaking heck - we come across a sign that said
LAKE SUPERIOR HIKING TRAIL.
