Sunday Eagle River excursion

On Easter Sunday afternoon, we headed up the Keweenaw to get in a hike, then dine at Fitzgerald's in Eagle River.
This is Jacobs falls, which were roaring.
We parked at the Great Sand Bay parking lot and headed in from there.
It's a red pine forest on the sand dunes here.

You can read more about this area here.

Sandy checked the ski trail map,
while I spotted something more interesting.

Oh good, there's still snow here for me to roll in and drink.

Many off shoot trails were not marked,
 so got off-track for a while.

K-9 scat was seen everywhere.  We thought it was from coyotes.

Last fall Eagle River township added a culvert here to repair a wet sport.
We had such a nice hike here. And of course, a most excellent meal at the Fitz!
