Final Family Summer Fling

This week our daughter, Maddie, returns to school, and next month our older son, Jake, heads off to college. As a final summer fling, we camped this past weekend at Muskallonge Lake, on the shore of Lake Superior.

On Saturday, we hiked the 10-mile long Chapel Loop, which took us through beautiful forest, a few waterfalls, a river emptying into Lake Superior, and breathtaking views of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

The trail winds along the shoreline through thick forest that constantly opens up to amazing views over the lake.

All in all, a wonderful final weekend of a very satisfying summer.
