4th of July Photo Recap

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!

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.

      Thanks! It was definitely a lot of work but so worth it. I was able to relax and enjoy while we were away. My tummy thanked me too!

      They were all incredible! Makes me proud to be a Minnesotan.

      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. 🙂
