We have a yearly tradition, here at Cascade lodge, where I give my wife a break and take the six kids up the Cascade creek (which flows past our cabin – not to be confused with the Cascade River) from Lake Superior, up as high as we can go. It’s a bit of a challenge for young kids as we climb over rocks and around tree roots and under fallen logs. But we managed to go quite a bit farther upland than the Lake Superior Hiking Trail. This we did yesterday morning.
Then yesterday evening night all eight of us hiked up to the top of Oberg Mountain and picnicked overlooking the lake on an evening so clear that we could see Wisconsin on the other side.
So for the kids and I this was two hikes with a total elevation change of more than 500 feet. And we all really enjoyed it.
