The Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is one of the best subjects for a fall color photo essay in the Midwest, the United States, and the even the world. The most amazing overlook in the park is the Lake of the Clouds. The spector of the fall foliage is so intense here that it warrants two posts.
I have already posted about the stunning Lake of the Clouds scenic overlook, so this fall color photo essay takes you through the rest of the hike. I hiked a little over 25 miles in two and a half days. I emerged from the wilderness on the last day around noon. My hike took me down from the Lake of the Clouds Scenic Overlook to the lake itself, then to Mirror Lake and Lily Pond to the Little Carp River.
I camped a night on the Little Carp River and then proceeded to walk to its confluence with Lake Superior. I continued to follow Lake Superior for ten miles and camped along its beautiful shores one night. After waking up to the crashing of Lake Superior waves, I hiked out of the woods, but not before seeing some amazing views of the forest and the lake from the escarpment near the highway.
