Kirk and Sarah made the trip from Des Moines to join us for a long cabin weekend 40 miles north of the town of Two Harbors on Lake Superior. (Click on the photos to enlarge).

Sarah of the North and Sarah of the South surveyed an expanse of Sand Lake.

Sarah of the South took the style prize with a vintage Double Mint down jacket and pants acquired at a Salvation Army in Duluth.
