Day Two–Porcupine Mountains in the Rain

Day One in the Porcupine Mountains on our fall trip was rain filled. Taking photos meant balancing umbrellas, walking slow and carefully and battling fogged and rain-speckled lenses. Light was challenging in the deep Eastern Hemlock Forest.

Both of these photos were shot during heavy rains on the Union Gorge hike. We entered the trail at an odd location and when we emerged it was on South Boundary Road. At first we walked the S. Boundary road back toward where we parked and then worried it was taking too long, returned to trail and re-traced out steps. So, we did the trail twice. Good thing it is a short one.

Tomorrow I will make a post on our “Enroute Day.” Mike and I never drive straight to a destination. Ultimately there are many stops.
