Porcupine State Park Lake of the Clouds

Nestled on the shores of Lake Superior in the very western portion of the upper peninsula lies one of our most coveted jewels: Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Michiganders call it the Porkies. Black bears are common in this huge park of 60,000 acres, so we did not venture too far in, but we did get this spectacular view of Lake in the Clouds. Just west of Silver City, this huge tract of virgin pines is part of the largest area of undeveloped wilderness in our entire state. With 87 miles of hiking rails and lots of backwoods cabins to hole up for the night, it's a backpacker's paradise.
