Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park - Summit Peak Loop

This trip took place October 6th - 8th, 2007


My buddy Mark and I have been backpacking together for the past seven years or so and in 2007 we planned a trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula (c'mon up to da U.P., eh!).  The Upper Peninsula or UP as it's commonly referred to is home to some nice wildland - particularly Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.  We planned for a four day weekend and did a great - albeit rainy - loop within the confines of the park. 

Our trip route was:
  • N. Mirror Lake Trail
  • Little Carp River Trail
  • Lake Superior Trai
  • Big Carp River Trail
I was very pleased with how the photos Mark and I took that weekend turned out.  The fall colors and wet landscape came together for some very soft and pleasing imagery.  Following are a few of my favorites.  View the entire set within the pages of my Porcupine Mountains set on Flickr.
