Grandpa guessed it. :)

We spent our first night on Isle Royale in 1982 at this campground. I've been hooked ever since!

Yes, Jerry and Midwest Ed are both right; Moskey Basin looking northeast down Rock Harbor.

Midwest Ed go ahead with the next picture. My pics are all easy to ID. (The reason I got Moskey is that I stood on that very spot last year.)

All the images I have of recognizable campgrounds or landmarks are just memories. My camera was far too heavy to lug along.

I have thousands of pics :shock: , so just tell me when to stop :? .

Many have been here, but probably not from this perspective (not a campground).

It's a shoreline, somewhere.

Not the Palisades.
Yes, it is a shoreline, but I don't think that's quite specific enough ;).

Not Chippewa. It is perhaps the most popular destination on the island (aside from Rock Harbor/Windigo).

Gotta be McCargo Cove.
