the Present Day
Sukie and I were out to the Grand Portage Trailhead in Jay Cooke during the mid-afternoon. There were quite a few people in the park today so we avoided the park headquarters. At the parking lot for Grand Portage which also provides access to the Superior Hiking Trail, there were a number of hikers. In an attempt to avoid a busy trail, we took our own direction atop a fairly supportive snow-crust to the edge of the river. After a time of solitude, we were joined by Cody, a young man who shared a similar intention. We enjoyed five minute conversation with each other.
