Porkies (Michigan U.P.) May 25-30th
Does anyone have any experiences/stories to share about this area?
I'll be backpacking in the Porkies in May with my Fiance. We have a cabin for two of the nights and will be at back country sites the rest of the nights. We plan to hang at the back country sites.
If anyone wants to join us, there are 2 extra bunk spots in each the cabins as well as back country sites right near by each cabin site.
