Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga Hike Route Map

Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga

If there was a 'home hike' for me during my time in Northern Michigan, this was probably it. Camp Petosega (writing it the correct way is just plain annoying) was located only about 2 miles from my home outside Indian River, MI. I lived there for nearly four years but neglected to put up an album because, well, there just isn't anything real special about the trails here. Here finally, is an album due to a (for this year) rare snowstorm which coated the landscape in a beautiful white coat. As I stated above there's nothing spectacular here but, if you enjoy snow-flocked pines and wintry streams, then this album might just be for you...
