Happy day my friends! I’m still unwinding from what was one incredible 4th of July weekend. Dana, Moose, and I went camping in beautiful Northern Minnesota. We ate great food thanks to loads of food prep, did quite a bit of hiking, saw some spectacular views, relaxed at the campfire, watched local fireworks, and savored the fresh air. Here’s a photo recap of our weekend!
Hiking & Sights
Eagle Mountain–the highest natural point in Minnesota at 2,301 feet! The hike was 7.2 miles. I was struggling towards the end of this one but the view was completely worth it.
Judge C.R. Magney State Park and Devil’s Kettle
The Campsite on Lake Superior
Waiting for Fireworks
Homemade clean food
Fresh whitefish dinner at Angry Trout in Grand Marais
It was one seriously amazing weekend.

Your food while being away is so impressive. A little meal prep/planning goes a long way!

It was perfect until the last morning when it absolutely poured and the hill down to our site created a landslide of mud directly to our tent! Other than that though it really was a great spot. Since it was right on Lake Superior, the breeze helped to keep the bugs away and the view was beautiful. 🙂
