Isle Royale Fall Vacation

Isle Royale September 2011

What a trip!!

My hiking partner and I decided to base camp and explore the eastern end of the island via day hikes (and runs, in my case). The weather was pretty ideal. It was a relaxed trip overall, just what I needed.

Returned home and left the next day for southern Minnesota and another kind of camping (this time in a state park). Spent the evening helping Larry Pederson flag the route for the In Yan Teopa 10 mile trail race. Saturday was race day. Despite waking up and not feeling really inspired to run I seemed to rally and had a good race.

Next up: Wild Duluth 50K in a little over two weeks. My first ultra of 2011!
