Saturday afternoon Erin, Madelyn, and I got back from our annual yay school is out trip, most of which was spent in Wisconsin. We drove through northeast Iowa and spent a few nights in the Porcupine Mountains, just over the Michigan border. We concluded the trip with a night in Madison, where lovely beer awaits (and hey, it’s just four hours away). Today I sorted, titled, described, mapped, and tagged 150+ photos; we’ve uploaded some and will add more overnight.
Traveling so early in the summer is mostly great. Big Bay State Park was deserted. In the logbook in Speakers Cabin in the Porkies, we read lots of entries about black flies. None for us. Okay, some of the seasonal places we visited hadn’t really warmed up yet. We saw lots of construction and renovation in Bayfield and LaPointe, and some places were closed. No matter, there was plenty to do anyway, and when camping I’d rather deal with a paucity of neighbors than lines for water and the showers. All in all, a great way to start the summer. Rather than try to cram everything into one epic post, I’ll be writing more about the trip over the next few weeks.
