Today we will put our supply boxes out, and our 4th hiker will join us. There are two roads that go deep into the northern woods from the route that wends along the north shore of Lake Superior. These are the Arrowhead Trail, and the Gunflint Trail. When one leaves Grand Marais on the Gunflint, there is a real sense of entering a wild and special place because the road has a "gateway" even though it is almost 50 miles long. Here is the gatepost on the north side of the entrance. The road is paved, but very curvy and not one that can be driven fast. And that's fine... even though we want to put the boxes out and start, we also want to savor the surroundings.
Because these locations are so remote we have allowed a whole day to get the two boxes placed.
