This trip took place October 6th – 8th, 2007
My buddy Mark and I have been backpacking together for the past seven years or so and in 2007 we planned a trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (c’mon up to da U.P., eh!). The Upper Peninsula or UP as it’s commonly referred to is home to some nice wildland – particularly Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park
. We planned for a four day weekend and did a great – albeit rainy – loop within the confines of the park.
Our trip route was:
- N. Mirror Lake Trail
- Little Carp River Trail
- Lake Superior Trai
- Big Carp River Trail
I was very pleased with how the photos Mark and I took that weekend turned out. The fall colors and wet landscape came together for some very soft and pleasing imagery. Following are a few of my favorites. View the entire set within the pages of my Porcupine Mountains set on Flickr.
