My pack signed up for a Solo Wilderness First Aid class so we loaded up and headed to Marquette on Friday morning. Since trail mutts already know how to handle themselves in the woods, I didn't get onto the classes. At least after the classes were over, we stopped in Craig Lake for a hike on Sunday afternoon!
|I see adventure ahead!|
|Ya, we need to get a going!|
|I'll go up ahead and check for vermin.|
This is what happens if I've not been out for a run!
|Oh, oh I spied a squirrel up there!|
|As we hiked past the Miller (of Miller brewing) cabin, the friendly family staying there came out to say hi!|
|You know I never get to see any kids!|
|OK we've got to get back on our hike around this lake.|
|An interesting tree we spied.|
|An old orange blaze|
|This trail eventually joined the North County trail.|
|Tea time! They tried out the pop-can stove their pal Dan gave us.|
It didn't like being lit in this cooler weather.
|I found my own brown tea here made with tannin.|
I recommend it!
|It snowed on us out here!|
|A pretty overlook.|
|A BIG rock I jumped on top of.|
|I'm hunting vermin again.|
|The bridge across the West Branch of the Peshekee river was being rebuilt.|
|Good thing, because crossing the old one was very, very scary!|
|I could fall off and get swept away in the raging torrent|
below, ya know.
|We've always wanted to see a suspension bridge|
|We had such a nice hike today!|
|Back at the car. I love Craig Lake!|
