Audio Podcast: Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Backpacking Trip May 2018
Fog rolled in now and then creating views like this on the cliffs of Lake Superior.I do not know how many times I have backpacked the Lakeshore Trail in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore over the past couple of decades. I have gone in both directions many times. This year, with 13 other people many with little to no backpacking experience, I would travel the trail once again from Sand Point to Sable Falls. This is something of an annual trip over Memorial Day Weekend though I do not always get to attend. The trip would turn out to be a very fine one even with some trials and tribulations thrown in. We lucked out with the weather and everyone had a good time. The audio you are listening too will give you a sense of what we experienced. You can find more photos in these photo albums which have the same photos but display differently (Google, Apple).
