On this beautiful Friday Noelle and I decided to get out of the house for a hike. We didn't want to go too far away and so we agreed that Hartley would be our best bet. We grabbed a pack and the dog and then made the short drive over to Hartley. We hiked to Rock Knob which happens to be a side trail of the Superior Hiking Trail. The top of the knob offered a great view.
From there we decided to hike around the knob and then follow the Hartley Road Trail back to the parking lot. We got a little bit disoriented on the confusing Hartley trails, however, and ended up hiking further than we had planned. All turned out to be okay, and other than some muddy boots the detour turned out to be great.
