Vacation Day 3 Part 1 Porcupine Mountains

After spending a night in Ironwood we headed out in the morning to the Porcupine Mountains. It was less than 50 miles from Ironwood so compared to how much we already drove, it was a short ride!

It's pretty hilly in the UP and was getting even more hilly as we got closer.

Getting close to our destination and we reached Lake Superior.

And drove along it for a while:

Until we saw this!

Finally, after living all of my life in Michigan getting to see this area was so exciting!

Made a quick stop in the visitors center to get a map and to make sure we knew where we were going and then headed to the see the Lake of the Clouds!

 Next time: Lake of the Clouds

I am really enjoying my virtual vacation to the UP. I doubt I will ever get that way again to do a trip like this.
