Lake Superior Tour Day 7

Well, today we didn't know what to do with ourselves. We were in Michigan and we had so much to see with little time to do it. We technically had through Sunday to ride but we all wanted to be home by Saturday for the Rockerbox motorcycle rally in Milwaukee. All the things we wanted to see in the UP were hours away. We decided that the UP was going to be another adventure and we pointed our bikes towards home.

Back in Grand Marais we see this dog roaming towards us. Hobbling along I assumed he was a stray in need of food and water. I attempted to give him some water and Doug tried to give him a piece of his Pop Tart but the dog wanted nothing of it. It turns out that this dog makes his rounds every morning through the town getting treats. He has many stops this gas station being one of them.

After getting his treat from the gas station he hobbles across the street to the brewery to see if anyone is there. If no one is there he moseys on to his next stop.

This picture was taken at the point of Grand Marais. We zipped up there to take a look and then headed our way home.

On our way home Isaiah knew we were going right past his parents old cabin so we stopped in to take a look at it.

All said and done we did 1881 miles from home to home.

It was by far one of the greatest trips in my life and I plan on doing it again someday to see what else I can find. If you ever have the chance to do it don't hesitate, just go.
