The last week got started in the typical fashion with a Saturday morning run on the rail-trail. The tree pollen was elevated which made breathing deeply a challenge, so I was glad to have the opportunity to stop and talk to a couple of friends along the way! Forgetting to stop Strava during one of my visits put a serious dent in my pace.
Julie and I stopped by the Chassell Heritage Center on Saturday evening to check out the progress being made by DP Construction on the exterior repair and painting project. The window frames were moving along nicely and a lot of scraping had taken place on the siding.
We then took a walk on the Chassell Fitness Trail. The clear sky, 70 degree temperature, and only a few annoying mosquitoes provided great conditions. The 10-station fitness trail was made possible by a recreation grant from the Portage Health Foundation, funding from the Chassell recreation millage, and over 280 hours of volunteer effort.
Sunday we drove up past the end of US 41 to the east of Copper Harbor to hike to Horseshoe Harbor where we eventually met up with our hiking group. There were a few mosquitoes in the woods, but once we reached Lake Superior the breeze kept the insects scarce.
There is a massive reef protecting Horseshoe Harbor that is made up of Copper Harbor conglomerate. We hiked along the base of it until we met Lake Superior at a narrow bay where we enjoyed the sunny afternoon until our friends caught up with us.
