Skiing and Drinking (at an Ice Bar)

Skiing Two Harbors

Today Noelle and I headed out of Duluth and up the North Shore to Two Harbors for some skiing and an apres ski trip to the Blu Ice Bar in Castle Danger. The skiing on the Two Harbors ski trail, also known as the Herkki Harju Trail, was not the greatest due to the fact that the trail had not been tracked. We made the best out of the situation though and enjoyed a nice ski.

After our ski we headed out of town and up the North Shore Highway to Castle Danger, home of the Ice Bar. It's only open on Saturdays from 4 to 8 pm. We got there shortly after 4 and each enjoyed a Ginger Stag which is a drink featuring one of those newfangled sweet bourbons and ginger ale. We then sampled some Leinenkugels beer before heading home.
