A couple months ago my future sister-in-law and I had an idea to have a (last singles ladies) adventure weekend backpacking on our own before our weddings. This past weekend we embarked on a 4-day long weekend adventure to the Superior Hiking Trail. The SHT is a 263 mile long hiking trail beginning in Duluth and ending at the Canadian border. We’re hoping this past weekend was only the first of an annual trip out to the North Shore to continue our hike! Caitlin officially became my trail sister when day after day she a) french braided my hair; b) picked wood ticks off of me; and c) named her pack with me (hers = Jonesy; mine = Bubba). After successfully completing our 23 miles hike, we set to the hotels for plentiful hot tubs, restaurants, and the lake walk!
