Joe and I went to Duluth on Saturday, July 14th for a nice little walk along the the lake. I don't think I've ever seen someone with a big hiking backpack on the Lakewalk, but it is technically part of the Superior Hiking Trail. A little something for everyone, right? I wonder if Duluthians say "I'm going for a hike on the Superior Hiking Trail" and then go for a stroll on the Lakewalk. Perhaps these are the same people that go for a hike in the woods and stop for a bomb pop at the concession stand? Ah well, I will leave my snootiness at the trailhead and accept the wonderful diversity of Minnesota's parks and trails.

This kid had a pretty neat 4-wheel bike contraption...and a yelling mother walking behind him.

Realizing that it was about 800 degrees outside, we turned around and headed back to the car and the wonderful A/C. We only covered about one mile of the Superior Hiking Trail (one mile out, one mile back) but it was a good way to spend the early afternoon.
