Last weekend I traveled to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Munising, MI for a short backpacking trip. I arrived on Friday, and hiked 4 miles to my first campsite at chapel beach. I set up camp and walked down to the beach just in time for the breathtaking sunset. The next day, my group hiked to our next site near the mosquito caves. The cliffs, and crystal clear water were tempting to swim in, but Lake Superior does not make for an enjoyable swim in late May. I spent the night and hiked back to the car early the next morning to make it home in time to catch some salmon out of Baileys Harbor, WI.
