Gargantua Bay, Lake Superior
Quick post today as I’m headed out the door.
Our first stop was Gargantua Bay on Superior. We used the area,which was fairly empty,as a jump off point to visit areas north and south of us. We had the kids with us so we limited the distance traveled to make sure we didn’t get caught up in anything. My wife and I have plans to return and paddle a much larger portion of the coast.
It was amazing! The lake itself is awe inspiring. The ragged shorelines and crystal clear waters left us speechless. We were extremely lucky to have a few days of very calm (almost no wind) days. This made travel very easy and allowed us to really explore every nook and cranny we could. A lot of time was spent just quietly paddling along soaking it all in. I have not been able to stop thinking about Superior since we’ve had to leave. It has been sitting there in the back of my mind the whole time. I often develop attachments to places we paddle. This time is different though, Superior is a special place and I really look forward to exploring more of its shoreline.
That’s it for today I’m headed out the door to pick up my solo canoe. Will be heading to Algonquin for a six day solo trip this saturday. So I have lots to prepare for.
