I ate, packed up and hiked back to Rock Harbor.  I started on the same path I took yesterday and then took a detour to Suzy's Cave and then to a slightly longer route along the southern shore of Tobin Harbor.  It was much smoother and in the shade so it was a much nicer walk.

When I got back to Rock Harbor I found a shelter and unpacked.  Then I hiked the 4.2 mile loop trail to Scoville Point at the northeast end of the island.  It gives a nice view of the rocky coast of much of the island.

When I got back to Rock Harbor I had dinner at the Greenstone Grill, one of the two restaurants at the lodge.  My quesadilla was very good and relatively inexpensive.

After dinner I went to the ranger-lead talk on the Charismatic Megafauna of Isle Royale.  It was mostly about the ongoing study of the moose and wolf populations.  The relative isolation of the island offers a rare opportunity to study the relationship between predator and prey.

After the talk I headed back to the campground and went to bed.
