Today was our first day on the Mesabi trail. We immediately noticed the trail was more hilly than the county road walking we had been doing, however we welcomed the secluded aspect of the trail as opposed to the shoulder. The trail went by many mine pits which had crystal blue water hundreds of feet deep.
We ended the day in Bovey and were lucky enough to get picked up by our friend Durham and head up to his cabin. We had a wonderful time with his family and friends eating, chatting, and laughing.
We are entering our final week of portaging and are looking forward to arriving at camp on Friday!
Nothin' to it, but to do it
