Nice hike, away from it all. Unfortunately the fall colors disappeared sooner than expected.

incrediblemagpieFrenchy's First Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2012


Perfect summer day on the North Shore. No bugs and sunshine! Our assault team consisted of five, my brother and his son, my son and his four year old, (Frenchy). First few 1000 yards went really fast. After the 4yr old fell a few times the pace became more leisurely. Those rocks and roots can come up on you fast. At least he does not get much momentum from a height of 4 feet. We met at least four other teams on the trail. We explored at the summit and enroute. Recon for the next adventure.

Very rocky and mosquitoes a plenty but a beautiful hike. Whale lake is wonderful. Saw 2 ribbon snakes and tons of weird mushrooms but sadly no wolves.

Had to break trail through fresh powdery snow on snowshoes. Wonderful way to avoid the insects though. Had to dig around for the summit plaque

Left the trailhead at sunrise, which made for excellent photos at Whale Lake. The fall colors were great. Views from the overlook were great, and getting to the highest point in Minnesota was neat. Met one person with her dog when I was nearly back to the trailhead.

milaniteEagle Mountain (Minn.)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2010


I got a bit of a late start on the afternoon of 29 September 2010, and found this highpoint to be a little more challenging than expected. The first three miles are fairly flat, but the trail is strewn with large rocks that must be negotiated carefully, especially after a morning rain. The ascent over the last half-mile is fairly steep, and the large summit plaque was a welcome sight. Then I had to hurry somewhat to get back to the trailhead before dark. It's beautiful country, especially in early fall, and I hope that you'll have more time to enjoy it than I did. The drive up from Duluth along Lake Superior is spectacular. This was state highpoint #28 for me.

huskertriguyRockier than expected  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


Hiked this after a week on Isle Royale.

Only a small handful of cars in the parking lot. I met all of their owners on my way up, and once again had a state highpoint summit entirely to myself. As mentioned in the profile, the views are to be had a short distance below the summit.

A much more rugged trail of exposed rock and root than one would expect in Minnesota. And the last half-mile or so shoots up-up-up!

After finishing the steepest part of the descent, I ran the remaining 3 miles to the trailhead.

Reached the summit fairly easy. Took about 3 hours round trip. Very nice area. Whale Lake is a nice place to rest. Eagle was my 28th highpoint.

A nice little hike via the standard route. I'd like to return and try the longer route from Brule Lake someday. State highpoint #35.

Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2010


My father and I wanted to do a little winter camping, so we spent the night at Whale Lake. It was 0(F) when we woke up. I ran up and tagged the peak while my father decided to stay back and break camp. I think he was in a hurry to get back to a warmer climate. This is my 35th state HP.

Brrrr... Did a New Years hike of Eagle on a very cold day. The temp was -4 at the start and -6 at the end. A big snow a week earlier made for a beautiful hike. It was like walking in a postcard. No hanging around though with temps that low, had to keep the core warm so we moved fast. Not a soul around but someone had been on the trail after the snow so the route was straight forward.
