Exploring the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, Ontonagon, Michigan

The thing this area is known for is the Lake of the Clouds, so off we went to explore.  Just a few miles down the road from the campground is the overlook – it’s a short, boardwalk (300’) to the overlook. Yeah, nice, but in all honesty, we’ve seen better.  We did plan to do some hiking to the lake, but changed our minds – it was just a hike through the woods to what we were already seeing – for us, there was no interest (plus we were feeling quite lazy). 

We then walked a while along the three-foot beach of Lake Superior – the views were quite nice and Zoey enjoyed her form of fetching sticks in the water – it goes like this: don’t throw too far where she actually has to swim, as she’ll only go to the point where her stomach gets wet - have a second stick at the ready, or she’ll run off and chew the original stick to bits and pieces – once she sees stick #2, toss immediately or she’ll jump up on you for the stick – repeat often. :-)

Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!
