Temperance River State Park

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

My younger brother and his girlfriend recently made the trip north from central Illinois to Duluth, MN for a few days. We camped at Lamb’s Resort in Schroeder, MN and made the most of the next day. We checked out Temperance River State Park, Carlton Peak, Sven & Ole’s, Stone Harbor Outfitters, and Oberg Mountain. We covered some serious mileage on highway 61, park trails, and the superior hiking trail. It was a nice little get away and reminded me about the beauty of the area around Duluth, MN!

Spirit Mountain

Spirit Mountain is an awesome place to hang out in the chilly winter months. Spirit Mountain is most well-known as a ski hill, but there is also snowboarding, Nordic skiing, mountain biking, camping,  and tubing. I am a downhill skier and I love the variety in scenery and difficulty on the hills at Spirit. I have even tried out the mini trick-park rails and jumps, although not very successfully. They also host tons of events including the X-Games and the Frosted Fatty. Inside the lodge there are cheap concession stands as well as fine dining. Thursday night is college night, with discounts on lift tickets, equipment rental, lessons, food, and drinks when you present your student ID. I’m excited to be hitting the slopes again soon.
