Just back from a 6 day trip

Post by Base654 » Sat Jun 02, 2018 6:55 pm

I just got back yesterday, 6/1, from a six night trip spent mostly in Rock Harbor and Moskey. Night time temps were in the low to mid 40s and the mosquitoes just started hatching on my last day. I saw a few piles of snow and ice on the Tobin harbor trail. day time temps were in the low 70s on the shore and up to low 80s at the towers on top of the island. The restaurant and gift shop is set to open the 5th. the store is fully stocked and running. they even have coffee first thing in the am.

Let's hope for a repeat of this weather! Were headed in June 2 this year for our first trip to the isalnd. I'd rather take cold than bugs. Any tips or things we may not be thinking of for this time of the year? What was the conditions of the trails? We're planning on watching the weather closely leading up to our trip, but are bringing extra layers regardless.
