It’s about that time of even a mild winter when our thoughts, our daydreams, our Google quarries, start turning to summer getaways.

Maybe it’s a canoe trip to Quetico or Wabakimi Park. Maybe it’s a week on Isle Royale or the Lake Superior Hiking Trail. Maybe this is finally time you get to see Denali or Kenai Fjords. Or maybe it’s Great Slave Lake for giant trout.

Whatever your big summer outdoor adventure is, or maybe even not so big ones, the News Tribune wants to hear about them. It might be a place you frequent. It might be a once-in-a-lifetime destination. What plans have you already made? What are you most looking forward to? What made you decide on this trip, this destination? Why now? What advice would you give others considering the same trip?

Pop us an email at with your details and, at some point in the upcoming dead of winter, we’ll run a few stories to help everyone look ahead to summer fun in the sun.
