Lake Superior ended up being our favorite all-around lake! It was absolutely beautiful, so peaceful, awe-inspiring… words do not do it justice.
First we crossed from Michigan’s lower peninsula to the upper peninsula, on the famous Mackinac Bridge!
Then we stopped at the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, to watch the boats go through the locks. Soon after that, we crossed the border into Canada!
This was my favorite campsite, by a long shot. We were surrounded by trees on 3 sides, with the beach on our 4th side. I fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the shore.
They loved playing in the rocks and collecting their favorites!
The stones were a colorful display of hues!
We went hiking on some crazy terrain!
Big rocks, big cliffs, no railings!
Climbing out on this VERY dangerous ledge to see some Native American cliff paintings.
Connor and the cliff paintings! It was super cool!
Byron and Lia climbing out to see the paintings.
Sitting down for a rest on the climb back up.
Swimming in Lake Superior — it wasn’t NEARLY as cold as I had anticipated!
We went down the road to a sandier beach for our swim time.
Burying mom in the sand.
They love climbing out on the rocks!
We had fun exploring the tide pools and rock formations.
Sophie and I on the beach. I love her smile!
We went back to the beach again after dinner. Byron and the kids “skipped rocks”, while I read a book.
…until this guy came to give me presents!
Stay tuned for the rest of the trip! We still have Huron, Ontario, and Erie to go! If you missed my last post about Lake Michigan, read it here!
