Let's play a little escapist game.
Last summer, as I got into hiking, I thought it would be really neat to do a hiking weekend or week as a family vacation. I actually asked my son if he would be interested in doing this and he said he would. My daughter might be working at a summer camp this summer so she probably wouldn't be in on this. Just me and my son.
I can't imagine that he is going to be into building up a lot of stamina to do a huge hike but I'm thinking it would be fun to hike on the Superior Hiking Trail for ten miles or so, come to a lodge, sleep the night, and continue on another ten miles or so where we can pick up our car. I know that there are actual taxi services that will take people from their car to various spots on the trail so we would probably try to do that. There is even mention of it on the Superior Hiking Trail site.
Now, I have a couple books on the Lake Superior Hiking Trail but does anyone out there have any stories of their favorite hikes and where we might spend the night? I wouldn't mind camping but that might be a bit much for my son. I'd like to strike a nice balance between what I'd like and what he would like.
