Re: Superior Hiking Trail

I thought about starting another forum for the Superior Hiking Trail that was similar to this, but the interest didn't seem to be there...as someone has mentioned, the Facebook group is pretty active for attaining the same thing a forum would do. However, my mind could be changed with a $15 donation...

Re: Chickenbone W. vs. Lake Ritchie

West Chickenbone will be buggy, regardless of the time of year. It will also be much busier. Lake Richie isn't AS buggy as W. Chickenbone. You're often alone there, too. There's a slightly higher chance of seeing moose here, too. The rocks at Lake Richie are a great place to sun yourself during the ...

OK, here we go. I called Houghton and the ranger kindly emailed me this link. Were headed over on Monday 5/22. Time to start watching the forecast.

Re: Current Weather Conditions for Isle Royale are on the Web

This link is dead. These were nice forecasts as they were (as noted above) what you would find at the ranger stations. Anyone have an updated link? Couldn't find one at a glance. I did a quick Google and got this, but there's no reports currently published: http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?s...

Re: What are you spending your REI dividend on? 2017 Edition

I ended up not buying a new sleeping bag or quilt because I FOUND MY OLD SLEEPING BAG after SEVEN YEARS of it being missing.

Instead I bought some new ski poles and some new lock cylinders for my bike rack. BORING.

Re: Rock of Ages light house restoration

I signed up as a volunteer, and apparently got accepted. My wife and I are going to be spending a week at the Rock of Ages lighthouse this summer. Any one else get in?

Re: Early May Trip Concerns

Here's a post I made earlier this year about someone asking similar questions: https://isleroyaleforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3262&p=21675#p21675 May is essentially my favorite time of year to do Isle Royale. Sure, it's not as beautiful as the summer, but that single trade-off is worth it for me, ...

Rock of Ages light house restoration

Here's some really good news for the Rock of Ages lighthouse. Needless to say, I'll be signing up as a volunteer.

Also didn't even know that this preservation group existed:

I also like this thread. Such Fun!

Based on the sun position, dock type and background of the Greenstone Ridge.
Ding ding! Almost *too* accurate of a guess...

Re: Guess What Campground?

I'm absolutely loving this thread. I'm sure my co-workers have been wondering what's wrong with me as I squint too-closely at my phone while zooming in on the pictures.

So here's my submission...might be too easy. Also put here because its one of my favorite pictures:
