"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush." Doug Larson

I borrowed this quote from my friend Sue Prom who runs with me on this far end of the Gunflint Trail.
During the sunny 65 degree days, it is hard to wish for the soggy rainy spring that we need to fill the Cross River and soak the woods. We’re looking forward to the canoe season----the yard is free from ice, the staff positions are almost filled, the days are light and we’re excited to share the Tuscarora bunkhosues once again.

Sled Dogs

Mary Tilden,three friends , and six dogs spent the weekend sledding on Round Lake and in the nearby woods. These beautiful dogs were delighted to pull as much as possible!
This year the Jonathon Beargrease sled dog races were cancelled due to lack of snow in Duluth. (Duluth is getting socked with a blizzard right now--due to get more than two feet of snow by tomorrow--but too late for the Beargrease). The Gunflint Trail hosted sled dog races this weekend--and many folks showed up to race, cheer, and enjoy the festivities. A new winter tradition for the Gunflint Trail???
