Wet and Wetter- June 6


Naomikong bridge

June 6... we were happy about a dry start to the day, but while we were still packing the packs the rain started again. We arrived at the wonderful suspension foot bridge over the Naomikong Creek soaking wet (we thought).
resting in latrine

The nice new fiberglass, accessible latrine made a wonderful place for a rest stop. Marie believes in full protection from wet, cold, and bugs! After that, we encountered the only piece of really bad trail on this whole hike. There was a boardwalk for footing, but the shrubs and plants had grown in so thick around it that we were not bushwhacking, but we were whacking bushes! After this section we really were wet... totally, dripping, nowhere dry at all wet.
Lake Superior

But we got a gray view of Lake Superior. If a thru-hiker were walking east to west on the entire NCT, this is the first view they would get of the largest Great Lake.
Tahquamenon Rivermouth camp

I am very happy to tell you that the rain blew away by afternoon and we had a truly lovely campsite at the mouth of the Tahquamenon River in the State Park there.

You sound very happy, Shark, in spite of all the rain. It seems as though you're enjoying your soggy adventures and we are certainly enjoying hearing all about them. Be safe and happy.

What a magnificent adventure. I don't want to think about what my arthritis would do to me in those conditions.
