On Saturday we ventued west to attend an NCT interpretive hike at the Norwich Mine site in Ontonagon County's Trap Hills. The mine is found along the North Country trail.
|With fall colors at their peak, I told my pack we|
needed to get out there and see them!
|We parked on the NCT but we thought|
it would just be a short hike to the mine.
|We made the first peak and saw the humdity would limit|
our views today.
|Another view, looking west|
|This section was blazed but short on sawyer love.|
|We spied some classic metal blazes.|
|We finally located the tour group!|
|The Marj's were there!|
|I showed Melinda the path to adventure.|
| Our guide was Dr. Patrick Martin who's an|
Industrial Archaeologist at Michigan Tech.
|A blacksmith shop site. I socialized some.|
|Ya more of that! Pat did a wonderful job|
telling us details of this 1850's mine.
|Ya, I'll miss you too...|
|We had such a nice hike!|
|Next, the pack headed to camp at the Porkies. We prefer a more rustic camp,|
but at least there were lots of friendly people here.
