Ribbon Cutting Re-opens the Trail

Precisely at 8:00 a.m. yesterday, with eighty or more Gunflint and Grand Marais residents looking on, Leanne Adams, president of the Seagull-Sag Home Owners Association cut the ribbon officially re-opening the last remain section of the Gunflint Trail. Cheers went up as the first six cars and trucks trailering boats and filled with tourist "going fishing" passed through the now opened roadblock.

Following the ribbon cutting many of the participants drove to Seagull Lake's Blankenburg landing for the ceremonial planting of white pines. Dave Seaton, representing his wife Nancy announced that a tree planting project will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 26-27. "we have the trees, the equipment to plant them and the volunteers to help plant." For more information or to volunteer to help plant contact hjo@boreal.org or call Nancy Seaton at 218-388-2275

Welcome home...
We are so sorry, for many that were not as fortunate as us.
