Did some volunteer work for the Superior100 race. Figured it was a good time to do my part seeing as how my biking was a bit curtailed yet.
Did some marking and some sweeping. Probably hiked close to 35-40 miles.
I find it hard to believe how these athletes can run this trail when just hiking it is so difficult. Very rooty, rocky and steep as it follows the Sawtooth Mountains. Those not from the midwest might snicker calling these hills mountains, but the constant elevation gains and losses are not to be taken lightly.
The race follows sections of the Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) along the route from Duluth MN, to the Canadian border on the North Shore of Lake Superior.
One of the best spots along the route is the Temperance River area.
Views of Lake Superior are very common.
In-land lakes Bean and Bear.
