Apostle Island Sea Caves ~ Spectacular!
Last weekend I did a solo motorcycle trip to the Apostle Islands, near Bayfield, Wisconsin. I found a remote campground with nothing but an outhouse for amenities right on Lake Superior, hiked above the sea caves, took the Madeline Island Ferry...and spent quality ME time. I am a firm believer in solo travel and try to go somewhere solo a few times a year to get away from the chaos of the city, soak in the calming sights and sounds of nature, and just reset my soul. When I first started solo traveling, it was almost uncomfortable and an awkward feeling - and now I cherish solo exploration away from the hustle and bustle of "life". Nature has so much to offer, and it is all free. What more can I ask for? If you’ve never been, I highly recommend checking out the Apostle Island Sea Caves. There’s a killer trail starting at Meyer’s Beach (WI) that’s roughly 1.8 miles one way which brings you above the sea caves. It was crazy to take in all of the sensations around me - I could hear the waves crashing below, FEEL the earth shake beneath my feet when the waves hit, and had spectacular views of Lake Superior - which looks more like the ocean than a great lake. There is a trail beyond the Sea Caves towards the Mainland campground, which is only accessible by hiking to it. Unfortunately, it was booked, but I still wanted to walk to it and check it out as a future idea - I made it 5.70 miles one way in, and still had another mile to go to the campsite - but was running out of daylight, so I never made it to the end. I will save that idea for next time I visit!
I forgot a backpack, but luckily there was
