If you are planning a trip up the Gunflint Trail yet this fall stop in to Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. Our hours remain the same from 10 am to 5 pm daily until October 18th. What a great time to get out and go for a nice drive along the Gunflint Trail. You can see some foliage starting to turn the fall colors. There has been some great animal sightings along the trail. Moose have been spotted up by Way of the Wilderness Outfitters and Trails End Cafe and right in our swamp at Moose Pond Drive. Driving to work the past few mornings my husband has spotted a lynx by the Gunflint Lake Overlook (at 5:40 am) you have to get up early to see some of the wildlife on the trail.
September 6th, we will have our annual Old Fashioned Pie & Ice Cream Social here on the front porch of Chik-Wauk Museum from 11 am to 4 pm. It is such a wonderful gathering of friends, neighbors and visitors to Chik-Wauk for the day you never know who you will run into. Suggested donation of $5 for pie ala mode.
Our guest author this year is John Hendricksson. John first came up here 36 years ago. He has written 7 books including his new one “Over the Portage, into History.”
Don’t forget to check out the sidewalk sale that will be held outside on the future site of the Administrative Building (located right across from the Museum.) You will be able to find some great gift items marked down from 10% off up to 50% off!
Enjoy the drive up the Gunflint Trail.
