    I don't recall if I ever mentioned, but in all those trips to the potholes, I later found out those weren't the potholes! The trail I though was going there actually goes to the west side, but the potholes are on the north. No trail most of the way, and a rugged backwoods hike. But worth it for sure!

    Nice Photos. Planning a trip there next Sept. with the Boy Scouts. Looks like it'll be a good destination.

    Hey Donk! Cool! It's a great place for kids. Mostly easy terrain, vast private beaches, no bear or anything to worry about except chipmunks and skeeters. The kids in my group all started backpacking on Manitou at age 4. First year they don't carry anything, second year just a bookbag with a teddy bear, and then build up from there. By boy scout age, they can start carrying your stuff, right??? lol
