Trip Report - 3 Nights in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Each year, my girlfriends and I spend a week in the summer traveling to a new an exciting destination. We all love hiking, wilderness, and water. Past trips included New Zealand, Newfoundland, Ireland, Vermont, and SW National Parks. This year, my friend suggested Michigan. I have to admit, I was not super psyched about Michigan when I was pushing for Iceland - but after an amazing week of hiking, sunbathing, boating, and camping, I realized that Michigan was just what the doctor ordered. The first half of the trip was documented on a previous trip report here: …blogspot.com/2013/07/northwestern-michigan-…

Our second half of the trip was at Pictured Rocks. I blogged it here: …blogspot.com/2013/07/pictured-rocks-astound…

Our activities included...

Picnic - Bridge View Park at Mackinac Bridge

Camping: 1 night at Woodland Campground in Grand Marais and 2 nights at Hurricane River Campground.


- Lakeshore Trail from Miners Castle toward Mosquito Beach and back.

- Chapel Rock Loop

- Au Sable Lighthouse from Hurricane River and Back

- Shoreline walking south from Woodland Campground

Boating: Pictured Rocks Cruises

We had an amazing time in Michigan! I wish we could have kayaked at Pictured Rocks.

Back to New Hampshire!
