While visiting Grand Marais, MN, we took a drive up the Gunflint Trail hoping to spot a moose. We struck out on finding a moose, but we scored on a great meal at the Trail Center Lodge.

Initially intended as a fall-color watching trip along the north shore of Lake Superior, we missed this fall's early color peak, but it still ended up a nice weekend getaway for October. The lodge is one of the... More
