|First of all, I had no idea that turning 30 could be so much fun!! My husband went above and beyond, making it a birthday I will never forget. He took me on a surprise trip waaaay up north to the Gunflint Trail where we stayed at the beautiful Gunflint Lodge. It is a place we will definitely be visiting again.
Every morning Eric had me open an envelope that had a picture of what that day's adventure would be. It was so exciting I could barely sleep! :) On my actual birthday we canoed into the Boundary Waters to explore the pristine waters and camp for a night. (We were going to camp two nights but it got REALLY cold and a snowstorm was brewing so we thought it would be best to get back to the lodge.)
Other adventures included moose calling and fishing with a guide, horseback riding, hiking, and driving up and down the Gunflint Trail at sunrise looking for moose. Thankfully, we got lucky and were able to watch a cow and her calf for about an hour one morning. It was amazing!
I think this fox wanted us to take him home with us :)
