Awesome day today!
Got up early to check and see if and when it was going to rain. The forecast said rain likely in the afternoon, so I set a goal of making it to Lake Michigamme campground.
Breakfast was only 3.5 miles from the campground at the Hilltop restaurant. I set off at about 9:00 a.m. from there.
Leaving the town of L’anse, it was all uphill and against the wind. But, by the time I made it to this little creek, it started to flatten out and the wind shifted in my direction:
I started to cruise. With the wind at my back, the miles rolled by. I made it to Lake Michigamme around 1:00, and there was no rain in sight, so I continued on. In Champion I stopped at a gas station to get some Powerade and an apple.
I kept on wheelin’ all the way to Ishpeming for a quick stop at McDonald’s. Didn’t get much – just a McChicken. The possibility of rain was nearing, so I hurried to get to Marquette.
My hosts were wonderful. I took a shower when I got there. After that, a tour of Marquette was in store for me. The parks were awesome, the shoreline of Superior impressed me, and the food I had was great. Also stopped at the Superior Dome – the largest wooden dome in the world and a U.S. Olympic training site.
Marquette is awesome.
