    Points Unknown Hedlund Husky Puppies

    Points Unknown Hedlund Husky Puppies

    Earlier this summer, we went up to Points Unknown for a Mindful Paddle experience. During that visit, owner Linda Newman introduced us to her line of Hedlund Husky dogs, including a pregnant pup named Siri. On July 30, Siri gave birth to five Hedlund Husky puppies. In this episode, we return to Points Unknown to meet the puppies and watch the first puppy go off with his new family.

    Cook County Airport in Grand Marais

    Cook County Airport in Grand Marais

    Did you know that Cook County has its own airport? This small municipal airport is located about 8 miles from Grand Marais on Devil Track Lake. While you won't find commercial flights flying in and out of this one-runway airport, you will see small privately owned planes zipping in and out. The airport also offers private scenic flights that you can do during your next trip to Lake Superior's North Shore. Just imagine chasing waterfalls or enjoying the fall colors from above. In this episode of Exploring the North Shore, Jaye and Martha are joined by Martha's longtime best friend, Cecilia, to get to know the airport better. Martha and Cecilia take a flight to capture some amazing aerial footage and to experience a sightseeing flight themselves.

    Mindful Paddle with Points Unknown

    Mindful Paddle with Points Unknown

    Oftentimes, when someone recounts their adventures in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA) they talk about the distance they traveled and all of the lakes they visited. They might say they went 9 miles and four portages deep on day one. While this is a common way to travel through the BWCA, it’s not necessarily the best way. Oftentimes, you miss the things that make the BWCA such a unique and wonderful place. The sights, the sounds, and the untouched wilderness. Going on a Mindful Paddle with Points Unknown is the perfect way to slow down, relax a little, and really experience the BWCA. And, it is also, a fantastic way to learn about the history and the beauty of this vast wilderness area from a guide who knows the area well.
