    Norther Michigan Hiking

    Just got back from a long weekend backpacking trip... this is my number one hobby... ultralight with a sub 10lbs base pack weight.

    Northern Michigan is my favorite place in the world... been around the world, but keep going back up there.

    the pics don't do this tract justice, near Manistee. Had a black bear come within 30 feet of us on day two - good thing we were packin' heat (just another reason to carry



    anyone know what these are?

    I'm surprised that Tim let it slide that you referred to Manistee as Northern Michigan. But I agree. I love it in the woods. Nice photos.
