SHT Adventure

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

My freshman thru senior year roommate, Brody O, and I recently went on a Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) adventure beginning in Silver Bay and continuing on to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, about 2 miles north of Highway 1 on the SHT. We wanted to get up to George H. Manitou Crosby State Park, but due to the difficult terrain, 50lb backpacks, and a close to depleted water supply with no refills we decided to halt the trip prematurely. It was an awesome trip, regardless and we learned quite a bit as we traversed the SHT.

Looking for adventure while you spend time at St. Scholastica? It is an absolute MUST to visit CSS’s Outdoor Pursuit website. I recently rented a hiking backpack for a couple days and it only cost me $6. They have just about everything you could need for an outdoor hiking/camping/paddling/canoeing trip and you can get it for a very cheap price. Check out the rental list HERE and start planning your adventure.


Fuzzy Wuzzy Wuz A Bear

Friday, June 30th, 2017

I had just finished up a run on the Hartley Park trails when I spotted this black bear traipsing through backyards about 50 yards away. I quickly got in my car and drove up to get a closer look. The bear ended up spending some time at a garbage bin where he got into some scraps including a watermelon! Neat to see the wildlife so close, but a good reminder to be aware of your surroundings when out and about on the trails in Duluth. One of the great things about Duluth is that it is in the heart of some of Northern Minnesota’s greatest wildlife habitat. It is important to know that we share this area with some fascinating animals that deserve to be both admired and respected. If you are up in Duluth during the summer, keep your eyes peeled because the bears are out and about!


SUPerior Paddle Boarding

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

My girlfriend got me the coolest birthday gift last week. She got us set up with SUPerior Paddle Boarding to participate in their Sunrise Solstice Paddle at Brighton Beach. The event was affordable and an experience I will never forget. The lake is a major part what makes Duluth what it is and I thought this was a neat idea to have a little adventure that incorporated Lake Superior. Not to mention it was on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, also known as my birthday!
