So now that we made it to the end of the West River Trail, it was time to go back up via the East River Trail.
Here on the other side you can see part of the boardwalk and observation deck.
But the East River Trail is just that..a trail. No more boardwalk or observation decks. Just a dirt trail.
It meandered over tree roots, down into little ditches and along the cliff. Marked only by blue dots on the trees.
But there was great views on the other side of the river.
It took us a good hour and a half to hike up this side of the trail. Of course, we kept stopping for pictures, and to take a little rest here and there, too! By the time we got back to our car we were both exhausted and hot and sweaty! But it was worth every minute of it!
That was pretty much our vacation.
On Wednesday we drove from Ironwood to home without spending the night anywhere. Approximately 605 miles.
I hope you enjoyed my vacation recap. I can only stress that if you ever, EVER have a chance to come to this area, or anywhere in Michigan actually, please do! I promise it will be worth the trip!
Thanks for coming along!
Until the next time!
