500th Post

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Wow! This post is my 500th blog post since beginning this job. I began blogging in April 2015 with goals to reach out to as many prospective students as possible. Today, I continue to try and give an accurate representation of life as a undergrad and grad student at the College of St. Scholastica. It has been a wonderful experience and I am very thankful for the opportunity to share my perspective and adventures with so many individuals!

Hartley Park

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

I will continue to say that adventure in Duluth can be found right in the backyard. Hartley Nature Center and Park is located in the heart of Duluth. It is a 640-acre park with over 10 miles of trails scattered throughout. The Superior Hiking Trail cuts right through the park, as well. Outdoor enthusiasts will take to the park to hike, trail run, cross-country ski, bike, and snowshoe. Just another landmark and another reason Duluth was voted Outside’s “Best Town Ever” in 2014! So get out and enjoy the warm-up as we go from winter to spring!

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.

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.

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!
