Back from Porkies

I just got back from backpacking with a couple friends in the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan's upper peninsula, the Porkies, on the South shore of Lake Superior. There was also a pub nearby called Porkies but we didn't go in, or tie a rope to our car and pull the place down. I took a lot of pictures but haven't gotten a chance to put them up yet. We hiked about ten miles a day for four days in old growth forest and never crossed a road, not even a fire road or doubletrack section.

Our campsites didn't suck either. Here's one of them.

More pictures and a full trip report soon.
