We left Milwaukee after lunch and headed north. We found a great place to spend the night right off the highway in Menominee, which is right across the Michigan border. It was $30 for the night at River Park Campground, but we were able to wash the camper and get all of our laundry done. The campground was right behind a grocery store so we did some shopping and bought some Chinese food for lunch.
Our next destination was Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on the shore of Lake Superior. We found a great camping spot at Bay Furnace Campground which is part of the Hiawatha National Forest. It is right on the shore of Lake Superior. We could look across and see the beautiful rocks. I really wanted to kayak to view the rocks. Others had said that was the best way to see them, but the weather did not cooperate. It was chilly and the waves in the lake were more than we could handle.
We ended up going on a walk and finding choke cherries and crab apples. Marc and Caroline picked some apples and made apple crisp.
We learned about the furnace here that was used to melt iron ore that the ships delivered here by boat.
On our way out we stopped at Muldoon’shttp://www.muldoonspasties.com/ for a pasty. It is a meat and potato filled pocket. It was sure yummy!
