Lake Superior, Two Harbors, Minnesota

Hi friends, we are back from our travel. This time we made a tour around Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake by surface area in the world, the world’s third-largest freshwater lake by volume, and the largest by volume in North America. We first touched the lake in the northwest corner of Wisconsin, went along the north shore in Minnesota, crossed the border into Ontario / Canada, explored parts of the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, and finally headed south again, back to Wisconsin and Iowa. It isn’t always possible to stay exactly along the shore during this tour but the forested terrain, the lakes, and rivers that surround the rugged coastline of Lake Superior are probably some of the best wilderness and nature areas we have ever experienced.

We have seen the lake as quiet and peaceful as it can be but we also witnessed its wild side with roaring waves hitting the shore.

During the next few weeks, and maybe months, I like to share with you some of the photos I made. It will not be necessarily in chronological order but I will give you information about locations.
