Northern Lights & Yooperlites
If the Northern Lights are on your bucket list, we are located near many great viewing areas AND we have even had the pleasure of seeing them right from the fire pit on our property!!! Prime viewing months are typically April, October, and November but in 2022 we have had the pleasure of seeing them vibrantly in July and on Labor Day Weekend! (I can recommend some awesome apps to help you see the Aurora forecasts & predictions)
The highly sought after Yooperlites can be found all along the shores of Lake Superior and we are located near some key locations to do some Yooperlite hunting! (We hear that the not-so-well-known prime times to find them are in the Spring when the ices goes out.)
