Oh ya. On Friday after Sandy got home from work....
|...we packed up and headed to our favorite Gardner Rd camping spot!|
|It rained some over night.|
|We don't mind the weather if we have Nueske's bacon.|
|I didn't get any pancakes, but I did|
get to sample some bacon.
|Let's go! We hiked out on the grassy 2-track|
to finish up the blazing we started last week.
|I love a picnic. Arly says he remembers|
these from when he was a kid.
|Hunting was good, as usual.|
|I picked up lots of weed seeds again.|
|Arly wants to make sure hikers know what trail they are on.|
|Finally, we relax in camp.|
|Adventures like this, do wear trail mutts out.|
|The sun peeked out in the evening, and we|
had a starry sky. We didn't stay up to view any meteors.
|MMM, fire roasted steak and veggies.|
|I'm ready to go to bed.|
|The next morning, we headed to the same spot, but|
this time walked in on "Pattison's Road."
|We saw fresh wolf scat, and this big fella's print.|
|This is just off the 2 track where you'd hike west|
to the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon.
|Who should we meet here, but Laura and Blaze. |
They were from Duluth MN, and on an
8 day adventure here. Maybe we'll see you later!
|This is looking much better,|
|We found a family of birds nesting right on the trail.|
|Could they be oven birds?|
|All done! Or, at least, the gas was all gone...|
|We met up with Laura and Blaze again!|
They'd got off the trail and wasted 1/2 the day so we gave
them a ride east a ways. But seeing them again is a cause for celebration -
a trip to The Legendary Rousseau Bar.
|I've been here a few times before.|
This place is trail mutt approved.
|Have a great trip! Wish we could come too.|
