For the Memorial Day weekend, we took an extended holiday trip up to the North Shore of Lake Superior, where we met my parents and enjoyed a weekend of hiking, canoeing, and relaxing. We drove up on Friday, and after dinner at Betty's Pies, met with them at the cabin we rented at Shoredge, Joe's family's resort property. We shared Fern Creek cabin, recently redone, and right on Lake Superior.
After breakfast and coffee on Saturday we explored the area around the property, along the shore, and along Fern Creek.
Saturday was a stormy day, which kicked up the waves on the lake, and kept our hike to only two miles. Joe and I hiked the Northern Lights Lake Trail, which we did the first time we went to Minnesota, eight years ago. The trail climbs up a hill to view the lake.

Though the weather cleared for most of our hike, we could see rain in the distance when we returned to the car.
We enjoyed a nice dinner at the Angry Trout in Grand Marais on Saturday night before returning to the cabin to listen to and watch the lake in the evening.
