I loved the little sitting area and coffee that was always available.
A moose! I couldn't believe how enormous they are!
front desk. I loved that wall hanging, it was made of metal.
The lady at the front desk told me how one of the housekeeper's mother makes these. They were adorable. I had to buy the owl one.
I enjoyed the hot tub a lot.
The pool was really nice. I did laps a couple days I was there.
I did a lot of driving on the Scenic Byway. It's so beautiful.
The road that led to Bird Lake...part of it in the shade was still completely covered in snow and ice.
Map of the trail. I was only able to walk a small part of it because some of the areas in the shade were solid blocks of ice, so I stuck to the snowy areas.

Woods at Bird Lake
My rental for the week..a Hyndai Tuscon. I LOVED driving it. I took this at the Skibo Vista Overlook.
As I was driving, I saw 2 deer in a field, so I pulled over to get a pic. They just stood there and stared at me like 2 statues.
They see me
Lake Superior/Split Rock State Park
