This morning we left the Northshore of Lake Superior and headed northwest to Iron Range country. Our first stop was up on Tofte Peak, an easy to sled to overlook just a few miles from the hotel. Probably the best viewpoint of the trip.

Our hotel in Tofte was the AmericInn. A great place to stay and sled from.

In Tower we are staying at the Fortune Bay Casino. Another great place to sled from.

Our trail from Tofte to Ely is known as the Tomahawk Trail. Not sure it would ever have been called that, if they named it today .

Meet Julianne (Julie!)

Julie has done 3 MichCanSka rides to date. She has been riding 50 years. She was a Yama Mama this year! She works hard in the background to keep her brother Pete (Trail Boss) in line and gives him (Pete) grief for trying to get everyone fed and back on the trail at lunch!
