Winter in the Porkies
The Three Amigos
One of my favorite backpacking trips was into the Porkies in February, 2007.
well, then you were there not too long after we were. what a great place! have you been there in summer? or fall? it is such a beautiful area...
I've visited the Porkies twice. February 2007 (as I mentioned above) and then again in I believe May of 2008. In May a buddy and I did a nice backpacking trip in which we checked out the majority of the ecosystem. One could backpack there for probably four or five days and get a great feel for the whole place.
indeed there's a lot to do in that park. i spent a week there a couple years ago, and only saw people near the really popular areas like lake of the clouds. other than that, it was rivers, trees and lake superior. beautiful area!
