Step away from the loom

Every so often you have to put down the shuttle and the bobbins and get outside.

Last weekend I was fortunate to see a part of the world I have long been curious about--the North Shore of Minnesota and a bit of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  We visited friends in the Twin Cities and then spent a few days in a condo on the shore of Lake Superior in Grand Marais.

We even hiked to the high point of Minnesota, Eagle Mountain, an 8-mile round trip. Though the weather was . . . changeable (rainy, windy, sunny, even a few flakes-of-snowy) we got out there and enjoyed the gorgeous fall landscape.
