Fort Wilkins historic State park-Upper Michigan

From 12 July till 14 July

Day 1 out of 3
Leaving a free C.G with electricity that has a clean bathroom next door is not easy as it looks, but we left the Kewadin Casino in Munising heading West towards the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula in UP Michigan also known as Copper Country.
Most of the trips I post are usually ones we do with only the truck but sometimes the ride from one C.G to another can be interesting too.
The route along the Superior Lake shore was very scenic and with the stops we made it took us to complete 300 KM 6 hours while pulling the 5W.
The C.G in Fort Wilkins is divided to 2 C.G, East and West, both have only electrical hook ups and clean spotless bathrooms, the West has the dumping station and the East WiFi connection-So we are in the East C.G…and all this on the LAKE…
We took it easy today, walked the park, visited the Fort and read a book.
Day 2 out of 3
If you look at the tip of the West Point in Upper Peninsula you can see that it is like a finger pointing into the Superior Lake, we left our 5W at Fort Williams next to Copper Harbor and drove the Copper Country Trail one of the America’s Byway’s and what a beauty it is.
The trail is sometimes next to the shoreline of Lake Superior and sometimes is 700” above the Lake, and the vistas are stunning.
We stopped to hike 2 waterfalls and get some Jam at the famous Jampot in Eagle Harbor where monks make their own bread, honey and jam, we also visited the beautiful Calumet old theater.
That is it for the day…
Day 3 the last day in this place.
Today is what we call “A DAY OFF”, meaning “off” hiking and traveling and doing some laundry, cleaning, reading, and surfing the net.
Tomorrow moving South West towards the Porcupine Mountains area.
