Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

Exactly one year ago, we stopped at the Porcupine Mountains for a few minutes on our way to Copper Harbor. This time, we came back to do it all! The Porkies were the second stop on a 10-day roadtrip along the southern shore of Lake Superior. Our campsite was at the White Pine Extension Outpost. […]
