I plan to visit Isle Royale for the first time this September... I can't wait!
Isle Royale National Park for a week of hiking and camping I would recommend it to anyone. This is a great addition. Great job.
I really enjoyed reading this page. I'm a student studying in southwest michigan but am originally from Oregon. Most summers I head west to get my climbing/backpacking fix for the year but this summer I will be in Michigan. I've thought of backpacking on Isle Royale this summer following a kayak expedition at Pictured Rocks and this page is causing my interest level to rise. Thanks for posting it.
Thanks for the kind words! Pictured Rocks is also wonderful, though I haven't yet kayaked there. My last hike there along the top of the cliff involved following fresh bear tracks -- on top of all the boot prints on the trail -- through dense shoulder-high brush, alone with my one-year-old son on my back.
My son enjoyed the loud singing, at least. :)
I prefer the mountains but variety is the spice of life!
and we about had the island to ouselves, cause most visitors arrive between Memorial and Labor Days. Lowlight was getting seasick on the ride out from Copper Harbor. Highlight? Too many to list! Thanks for creating this page!
Thanks, I'd love to try it in September -- but school intervenes. We may try it in May, though, since my school gets out before most other people.
