      After Duluth we headed east (of course) to Keweenaw Peninsula in Upper Peninsula, Michigan which is why we are "yoopers" for the moment

      Last night stayed in Twin Lakes State Park (yes there are lakes) and woke to a major downpour. Decided to not make pancakes and packed up and went out for ...
