Wind, Waves, and Solitude

It’s quiet time on the North Shore – ahhhh. we are post -all-colors and pre-holidays and winter activities. Gale-force winds have ripped the remaining leaves off the trees, opening up views to Lake Superior, the woods and, unexpectedly, the waterfalls. A very wet autumn makes for rivers running a bit when they are usually a trickle.

Make sure to call ahead if you have a favorite attraction or restaurant you want to include in your visit, as they may have limited hours or be closed. It’s a great time to try a new place – ask a local or your host/front desk staff for a suggestion.

It’s wave-watching season, too. Include some time to get close to the big lake and watch the ripples, the rollers, the seiche, the surges. Buy a book about shipwrecks – they’re fascinating and give a sense of the power of the big lake.
