Turn off the Screens; Reconnect to What’s Important
Wednesday, July 18th, 2012
A recent report shows that 1/3 of all teens spend up to 40 hours a week in front of some form of screen (television, computer, smart phones, etc) and nearly 10% spend up to 50 hours a week. That’s equivelant to a full time job. Wow.
How about unplugging and reconnecting to what’s important – family, friends, yourself, your partner, your health,your marriage, and more. When you visit Lutsen and Cook County, you’ll learn that 92% of our land mass remains undeveloped and under some form of public ownership US Forest Service, state parks, DNR or the State of Minnesota. Described another way, it’s peaceful, pure and without gridlock. You’ll likely need to dodge deer, moose, fox or other 4 legged critters as oppossed to dodging traffic and construction detours. We have hundreds of miles of wilderness roads perfect for mountain biking. We have newly developed and awesone single track trails in Grand Marais and Tofte and for the more relaxing ride we have the Gitchie Gami paved bike trail. And if you don’t have a bike, don’t worry; we have several quality rental shops in the area. Hiking trails, you bet. Why not get lost for awhile. Scenary; unmatched beauty. Zip lines on-top the forest canopy, yup we have that too.
And to compliment the natural beauty of the area we have a fine assortment of lodging for your “unplugged getaway”. So, reconnect, let’s go. The summer is still young.
