We always spend some of our time on the North Shore, in our car,
driving the Fall Color Tour
in the Sawtooth mountain range near Tofte
The road take us to the back woods,
where the colors are at their best
For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky.
Through everything God made , they can clearly see his
invisible qualities-his eternal power an divine nature.
So they have no excuse for not knowing God Romans 1:20
I was determined to find this little church again, I'm in love with this little beauty!
It's somewhere down the gunflint trail on "Maple Leaf road"
We found it again :)

Grand Marias is a must-go-to town for us,
just a small town with a population of 1300
a small town that is booming with character,
it's unique, diverse and
there's so much to see and do.
The World's Best Donut Shop did not disappoint us.
It was our first visit here, it's been closed all the other times we've come.
Long Johns with maple frosting
Yummy rich frosting, soft middle and a wee bit of a crunch on the bottom
Seriously, I have never had a donut this good.... in my life!
They were so good we bought two more for a late night treat.
Artist Point- Why had we never explored this area before?
A 1/2 mile hike, over lava rock, through a small forest,
beauty all around,
I can see why this area is an inspiration for artists and photographers,
it's breath taking...
My nomad husband...he forgot to bring a hat out to the point,
the sun was intense.
Looking back at Grand Marais from Artist Point
The weather changed, on the day we were to come back home
it was extremely windy, cool and overcast,
it made it a little easier to leave the North Shore
We made a few stop to admire this kind of thing
Surfers on Lake Superior...I love that
Our favorite time of year together... Our favorite adventure,
just him and I, relaxing, exploring, laughing.
We are refreshed!
