We are Ely fans ... the entire family! My husband and I fell in love years ago after a winter camping trip with Wintergreen. This year, our kids were old enough to dog sled and so over Christmas break we headed to Ely. I often live-stream WELY when I am need of a good "Ely Fix" ... sometimes it's the menus I need to hear, sometimes the things for sale, often the great music!
Well, this year as WELY broadcast all the great things going on, my Ely-homesickness could take no more. I booked us at Grand Ely Lodge and booked other wonderful excursions during our stay. We all felt we were "home".
My 9 year old daughter, Margaret Ann really fell hard for Ely. The cross country skiing, dog sledding and Wolf Center grabbed her heart and has not let go. So much so that when her art teacher proposed a "Snow globe" project to have the kids illustrate a snow globe of where they would want to be this winter, she was the only one heading north!
So, you see her favorites ... Zup's (she ate beef jerky all the way home and loved the potato sausage we brought home as well), Steger Mukluks (I was surprised with a pair by my husband) and the Chocolate Moose (which satisfied her picky palate). Then the wolf howling in the background (we caught a feeding time and it was so cool!)!
Thanks to the town for a really incredible vacation! We could be your ambassadors for sure! There are other businesses and people who really made our vacation memorable and so special but the globe was only so big!
You have a special way of sharing your fair city!!
