DULUTH -- In the third episode of her Northland Outdoors video podcast, Ali Juten, known as Ali UpNorth , shares pictures and stories from her family's outdoor adventures with her newborn and 2-year-old daughter.
"Just watching the woods wake up, and just being outside, was just what I needed," says Ali, an avid turkey hunter, about a short stay at the family's hunting shack. "We didn't see a turkey, we didn't hear a turkey, but it was worth it to at least get out there."
