Mrs. Beep and I took a Friday/Saturday/Sunday trip last weekend to the "north shore" of Lake Superior to hike a new (to us) section of the Superior Hiking Trail.
We drove up Friday to Split Rock State Park and hiked south along the SHT to a campground along the Split Rock River...and directly across from...(ta da!)...the Split Rock!!
Saturday we backtracked a bit and headed north, putting in about 8 1/2 miles before settling into the Chapin Ridge campsite. Sunday we were up early and back to the car in the state park before lunch!
Weather was generally clear but hot (for Minnesota!). Daytime temperatures in the low to mid 80's and night time lows around 60 degrees. I thought the salt patterns left on my shirt were quite artistic!
One of the highlights of the trip was Mrs. Beep's comment to me to the effect that she didn't ever want to go back to a tent!! Yay! FWIW, we have matching WBBB in "mirror image" configuration.
