    MN North Shore Winter Trip

    Anyone interested in a winter trip up the North Shore of Lake Superior? The rivers and water falls are very interesting with snow and ice. The AmericInn in Silver Bay, MN has rooms starting at $80.00/night in the latter part of January. There is winter camping if you are very adventorus!

    Wow, free ice in every drink. Grin.

    Wish I could make it. I'm sure the area is beautiful in the winter having been in the fall.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I've been talking with Ike Eisenlord about meeting up for a winter trip there. No dates set yet, but sometime after the ice sets up good. Keep me posted.

    I'm definitely up for a trip this winter. I was thinking of trying to be semi-spontaneous based on what winter brings. We haven't had any "real" ice on the lake since 2003, don't know what this year will bring. If no big ice then maybe try for some unholy cold. A day or two well below zero when the "lake smoke" is in full effect would be good. Count me in and lets shoot for Jan/Feb.

    Wildbill, thank's for the kind words and plug!

    sounds like a fun trip. If I can get away, I might try to go along. I love the superior shore line and would love to explore it more during the winter

    fyi, I'm thinking of a week long trip, if I had to pick dates now I would pick the following two weeks as they have a full moon and I've wanted to do more night photography on the lake. Jan 19th-26th or Feb 16th-23rd. Jan 21 the moon is at 99% and rises at 4:52PM - 51 degrees. Feb 19th the moon is at 97% rises and 7:38pm - 80 degrees. Location is better in Feb for earlier shooting.
