[VIDEO] Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Days 3 & 4

 

 

My journey continues with my second hike of the year …

May 27-28, 2019, Days 3 and 4 on the North Country Trail in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

After ‘postholing’ at the end of Day 2, I decide to Zero on Day 3 and stay in Munising, MI, then I drive to the Little Beaver Lake Trail Head on Day 4 to continue my adventure. I hike in 1.5 miles to the North Country Trail junction, discover that it stays really cold in some parts of the forest, have the entire beach and Lake Superior all to myself, and then hike to the Pine Bluff Back Country Camp Site. I setup camp for the evening, go exploring, share the campfire with my camp mates – Katie and Andrew, and take my first attempt at capturing the Milky Way!

May 26, 2019, Day 2 on the North Country Trail in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

After a great first day on trail and deciding to get back in my sleeping bag for awhile, I change my plan and hike back to the Munising Falls Visitor Center from the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Cliff’s Backcountry Camp Site, all to lighten my pack and leap-frog the vehicle forward along the trail. Two hours into the trek back, I pass back by a hidden waterfall, and then things got interesting (You’ll have view Day 3 to find out what happens!)

[Video] Sleepy Hollow Trail Hike – Day 2

Day 2 of 2 hiking on the Sleepy Hollow State Park Trail

My journey continues with my first hike of 2019 on the Sleepy Hollow State Park Trail, located in Laingsburg, MI, along Lake Ovid. The weather was fantastic for early April in Michigan and I was able to shake down some new gear & ‘my legs’ after spending much of the late Winter months cooped up inside recovering from walking-pneumonia. Gosh, I still have so far yet to go …
