A beautiful day in the Northland and Noelle and I were in the mood for taking Parker out for a walk. Since most of the trails are slushy swamps we wanted to hike on a nice paved trail. I felt like we've spent an awful lot of time on the Lakewalk in Duluth though and wanted a little change of pace. As a result we decided to head into Superior and walk the Osaugie Trail.
While the Osaugie is certainly not as scenic as the Lakewalk, we enjoyed the walk with views of some of the ships in their winter harbors. We even got a glimpse of the crew of the Indiana harbor getting ready for the upcoming shipping season. Besides the ships, the Osaugie Trail offered views of ore docks, grain elevators, and the last hearty ice fisherman of the season risking their lives on the slushy ice.
