“It’s hard to see the forest through all the trees.”

The leaves are turning before my very eyes. It’s subtle, but each day I’m seeing just a bit more color. Today was a day filled with bogs, mud & wet feet.

I tackled the infamous lake walk today which consists of 2 miles along the shore of Lake Superior. It is such a dreaded portion due to the rocky & sandy conditions that some hikers forego it entirely and complete the stretch along Highway 61.

It was amazing. The sound & sight of the waves crashing into the shore. So beautiful! The view more than made up for the sand in my shoes & the completely drenched feet from having to walk through the water when the shore all but disappeared in spots.
