This past weekend, I had the privilege to go on an epic winter trip up to Lutsen, Minnesota on Lake Superior. 10 hour car rides, -12 below average temp, ski trails, hot tubs, friends, games, and beautiful sunrises were enjoyed by all. Here are a few pictures I took in an attempt to capture the majestic winter beauty of Northern Minnesota. Of course, nothing really does Lake Superior more justice than standing along its shoreline and gazing at the immense display of grandeur firsthand.

This morning, I woke up to a magical winter wonderland….
So of course, I had to go exploring while everyone else was at home cozied up.
I started at LaColombe Torrefaction (my favorite café to watch the snow fall), then worked my way downtown to the Bean, through Grant Park (I was the only living soul wandering through the park…so weird), across the Loop, and finally up to Moody. It was a glorious, snow-filled day!
