There are few things in life better than tromping through the woods, standing at the base of a lighthouse looking over Lake Superior, or devouring a delicious piece of pie.
On Saturday, February 12th the Superior Outdoor Adventure Program (SOAP) did all of those things. SOAP headed over to Gooseberry Falls State Park to begin their adventurous day. A group of 8 participants set out for a 6 mile hike along one of the most scenic stretches of the Superior Hiking Trail with a goal set for Split Rock. The group saw some beautiful scenery and enjoyed some delicious homemade cookies. They also saw some wildlife and had fun playing in the snow.
After a few hours of gentle hiking, everyone was ready to just sit and relax, but not before a slight detour to the actual Split Rock Lighthouse. This recognizable tower stands just as beautiful in the winter as it does on a sunny summer day. There were definitely some photos taken here.
The final piece of the day was a stop at world famous Betty's Pies for a yummy pasty and pie combo. The group finally headed home with full stomachs and tired legs. That is what SOAP trips are all about!
