Lake Superior Storm Season

There’s nothing quite like a November gale — wind howling, icy waves lashing the rocks, a shiver of awe running down your spine. Treat yourself to a storm-season retreat before the bedlam of the holidays begins.

This season honors the power and wild beauty of the Big Lake. Why not hop in the car and experience it for yourself this year?

The Far and Near Gallery Exhibition, Nov. 12-Dec. 5 | John Heritage Post Art Gallery

Celebrate the vibrant spirit of Lake Superior and all her moods through the works of Karen Owsley Nease. Join the opening reception Nov. 12 with an exclusive artist talk.

Storm Season Author Event: Sarah Stonich & Peter Geye, Nov. 20 | Drury Lane Books

Drury Lane Books welcomes beloved and best-selling Minnesota authors Sarah Stonich and Peter Geye for some out-of-the-ordinary storm season fun. Bundle up, bring a thermos with your favorite warm beverage and hang out with us by the campfire as Sarah and Peter share tales from their books, work, and lives.

Sarah’s new book is Reeling, the second in her Fishing trilogy. She is also the bestselling author of Vacationland, The Laurentian Divide (winner of the Minnesota Book Award for Fiction), and These Granite Islands. Peter’s most recent book is Northernmost. He is the author of the award winning novels Safe from the Sea, The Lighthouse Road, and Wintering (winner of the Minnesota Book Award).

This event will be outdoors no matter the weather, so dress warmly and bring your thermos and intrepidness.

Lake Superior Wave Dash, Nov. 28 | Lutsen Resort

You have probably heard of a “polar plunge.” Wave Dash takes the idea one step further — literally. You don’t just dunk in Lake Superior — you run into it.
That’s right. Take a quick, chilly dash into Lake Superior, contribute to a good cause, and win bragging rights for life.

Registration is at 11 a.m. and the Wave Dash will be at 1 p.m., benefiting the Cook County Community YMCA. Team costume prizes, age group prizes, local community swag bags, hot chocolate , Lutsen’s wild rice chowder and house-made chili.

More details to come.
