Back up to Gunflint!

After our wonderful spring vacation up the Gunflint Trail, I booked a 'bounce-back' trip for this fall.  Originally I planned on bringing the kiddos up by myself, but then we found a few more folks who were available for a fall getaway- Grams and Gramps!  The Gunflint Lodge was offering an amazing 'bounce-back' deal, with FREE accommodation as long as you committed to eating most meals at their restaurant.  How could I pass that up?
 
On the way up to Gunflint, we stopped at our favorite little Lake Superior beach to throw some stones and rock-scramble a bit before hopping back in the van.

 Buddy the Golden Retriever found out he loves rock scrambling!

 We took another leg-stretching break in Grand Marais-  the weather is just starting to get a little chilly, but it was still an 'ok' day to be in sweaters and jeans alone.
 Dinner at the Red Paddle Bistro at Gunflint Lodge.  Justin, Grams and Alex were in the middle of a rousing game of "rock, paper, scissors, moose".... ?  Every single meal we ate here was amazing.  The beer-battered walleye was a crowd favorite, but they had very nice salads and beautiful fresh baked bread-of-the-day.
