Mon 11th - Wagon Wheel Campground/70°F
I rode in the 28' 1992 Isuzu Safari motorhome with Bob (
video) and dogs while Gail went with Lynna in the LeBaron convertible (top down). Stopped at Hinkley's Grand Casino for lunch and really stuffed ourselves for $7.79. Got ourselves a spot right on the lake (video) and Bob is master at manouvering the big thing. We went for a walk along the road. Checked out Breezy Point Lodge. Roasted "brats" for supper over a fire. Sat outside until 9:30PM talking - no mosquitos!

Wed 13th - Gooseberry Falls/70°F
Walked along lake and climbed up a cliff face to hit the Gitchee Gummee Trail to the lower Gooseberry Falls (video). Had lunch and then crossed the road to hit the trail (video) to the upper falls (video). Put our feet onto the Superior Hiking Trail, but didn't walk any of it. Met a lady walking a "Weinmater" dog. After supper (video) with Sangt'gria I talked to Lynna about her family until 11:30PM.
