Re: Almost time to begin my first trip!

They did get some rain on the island but no where near as bad as the Houghton area did. I talked to some people that were there over the weekend camping and hiking and while the rains did affect them they were able to work through it.

Re: Almost time to begin my first trip!

My first trip to the island did not go as planned but it was still a blast. Driving through Houghton was a challenge but enough roads were open that I was able to get through. My first night/morning at Washington Creek gave me my first moose encounter as I woke up just after 3 to hear one splashing ...
