I'm here in Marquette, with my friend Lorana, who is letting me stay here. I'm giving my program tonight for the North Country Trail Hikers Chapter.
However, today, we went out hiking with a visiting group from Harbor Springs. They are hiking various sections of the North Country Trail in the Upper Peninsula. We started at Craig Lake State Park and headed east as far as the outlet for Crooked Lake, then returned. Total, about 8 miles.
The morning was quite chilly, which felt delightful.
There were rocks and hills, but this sight was slightly unusual. Look at the size of the burls on that tree!
We walked four miles to the bridge over the Crooked Lake Outlet, where we sat on the bridge and ate our lunches. It was nice to have a little sun on our shoulders.
Look what's happening already- the leaves are starting to turn colors. Fall is coming!
I should be home again by this time tomorrow.
