Gunflint Trail 2011 - Part 5

Day Four:

The morning started off cloudy but if you look really close, you can see the hint of a rainbow.

The rainbow must have been good luck because while fishing off the dock, I caught my first fish of the trip!  It's just a pudgy little bass but I was really happy.

We didn't keep any of the fish we caught but for those who did, I thought the "fish surgery" sign was funny.

Once again, we headed out for breakfast, this time at the Windigo Lodge.  We stopped at the Trail Center for gas.

We did more fishing (this time with the motorboat).  Overall, I only caught two fish and my dad caught the one pike and handful of bass.  Round Lake was beautiful to look at but didn't seem like a great fishing lake.  We were told there much better lakes to catch fish in.  Oh well - more fish would have been better but I really didn't mind.

In the middle of the day, I rode solo to the end of the trail and back since the curvy road was a lot of fun.  Here are some shots from the end of the trail.

Another beautiful sunset over Round Lake.  Look close and you'll see our cabin neighbors on their rowboat.

That evening we went back to the Windigo Lodge for dinner.  I was rather dark by that point and we were told to watch out for moose.  Thankfully we didn't see any.  When we got back to the cabin, I headed down to the dock.  It was very dark but perfectly clear.  I have never seen so many stars in the night sky in my life.  Amazing.

Come back for more photos from the last day of the trip...
