Show and Tell
Since our adventures for the day were not possible due to the poor trail conditions from the previous few days of warm temps and rain, we found ourselves at a nearby lodge using the wifi service since ours continues to cut in and out. Yesterday it was out. (and today...)
We were warned that forty five 5th graders were about to descend upon us so we should be prepared. They had come up from Grand Marais for a day of outdoor winter fun that included sledding, snowshoeing, ice fishing and skiing. The owner of the Gunflint Pines Resort and Campground mentioned, in passing, that it would have been nice to have a team of sled dogs here for the kids to visit. Hmmmm.....well we're here with no adventures scheduled for the day so our guest musher, Karen, went to retrieve her dog truck and dogs. The dogs spent the next hour being petted and hugged by the kids. Win, win!
