We are planning a trip along the north shore of Lake Superior (Minnesota and Canada) and would like advice from someone who knows the area.  Specifically, we're wondering when the best time of year is for weather and a minimum of flies/mosquitos and other biting bugs.  Thanks in advance.

The last week in July & first in August are when summer occurs.  Not a complete joke, as I've seen the trees start to get fall color mid-August.  That would be the warmest period, but bugs are still bothersome.  Sept. would be best for bugs and the weather is moderate.  Everything is a compromise, except, it seems, politics.

We travelled from Grand Portage MN to Sault St Marie the last week of August til the Second week of September last year (great trip). There we next to no bugs on the trip, little precip, but some cool weather. Every year like everywhere is a little different. We has reservations up until Labor Day. After kid went back to school we didn't need them. KP
