North Campground Loop Trail

Fisherman's Island State Park

The other morning I awoke to Northern Michigan in rare and spectacular form. The temp outside was a nippy -5'F and the wind was blowing above 40mph giving a windchill somewhere in the -30 range. Classes were cancelled so, naturally, I decided it would be a nice day to go out for a hike!
