A fantastic Porkies hike!

On Sunday November 18th the pack lured fellow trail lover Mark out on a fine cool, dry fall day for a loop hike in the Porkies. The 2-leggeds hiked 13 miles. I of course did at least 60...

Jeez! Am I going to have to lead these guys around AGAIN??

How did these trees manage to grow like this...
We headed to the Big Carp River mouth first.
We returned along the Little Carp.

We checked out Greenstone Falls along the way.

Hey! I think there's vermin here.

We ate lunch at the river mouth. I had lame kibble...

We next headed up along the Little Carp River.

Trapper's Falls...not to be confused with Trader's Falls
which was smaller and farther down stream.
We crossed the river again...what is she so nervous about?
The only mistake we made on this adventure was failing to get some photos of 3 deer hunters we met on the Lake Superior Trail. We will never forget them - each lugged full, large backpacks AND THEY ALSO PUSHED WHEELBARROWS overflowing with gear!

We'll accept that you think we are full of beans...we wouldn't believe it had we not seen them ourselves!

They were to be camping in the Big Carp 6 cabin for 10 snowed heavily on their day 6...wonder how getting back out is gonna go.

Another photo op missed was at the end of our hike. We made it back to the car just after 5, just as sunset was approaching. A few miles drive from the trail head were a pair of hikers and their 2 dogs, all looking exhausted. So we turned around and ferried them back to their car. One wrong turn can ruin your day! Luckily my pack had me to lead the way and avoid any mishaps like that.
