Gunflint or Artic?

It’s been pretty cold on the Gunflint Trail lately and I wouldn’t want to have been out camping in the Boundary Waters. Winter camping in the BWCA can be a fun thing to do, but not when the temperatures dip into the -30′s! Last night our low on the Gunflint Trail was -37 degrees actual temperature and it only got up to -3 degrees yesterday for the high. Yep, it’s been pretty cold on the Gunflint Trail.
That doesn’t mean there hasn’t been activity on the Gunflint Trail. The birds have been feeding endlessly at the bird feeder. Neighbors have reported moose, wolf and lynx sightings and of course the fox have been out and about too. As for the two legged folks on the Gunflint Trail their time outside has been a little shorter than usual especially when the wind has been howling like the wolves.
The moon is approaching full and it’s an amazing time to be in a snow covered wilderness. The moon reflects brightly off of the snow and it looks almost like daylight on the lakes of the BWCA. If the temperatures don’t increase a little bit then I won’t be out skiing beneath the full moon this weekend. Until then I’ll be sure to keep the bird feeders full and a log in the fireplace.

New Year on the Gunflint Trail

Filed under: Gunflint Trail — Tags: — Sue Prom @ 1:00 am

It’s a new year on the Gunflint Trail and we hope to see you at Voyageur! While it may seem like summer is a long time away it will be here before we know it. Later this month we’ll be able to start reserving Boundary Waters permits and we can already reserve Quetico Permits for trips starting 5 months from now.

We’re busy at Voyageur talking to folks about their canoe trips to the BWCA and Quetico.  We’re also taking inventory of what we have and what we need for the new year. We’ll be purchasing canoes, gear and it’s the time of year we put our outfitting food order in as well.

We hope to see you at Voyageur this new year and wish you all the best!
