I have written and posted extensively about the adventures found in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness backcountry area after returning from a three day hike last month. I have posted about the fall colors both at Lake in the Clouds and in the woods, I have posted about the wonderful wilderness camping, and I have written a post about an amazing sunset on Lake Superior.
Porcupine Mountains wilderness backcountry
Although these past entries provide a clear picture detailing the beauty of this northwoods wilderness in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, it does not tell the whole story. There is something missing. This post hopes to show readers the rest of the park because there is more than sunsets on Lake Superior and fall colors.
There are gorgeous inland mountain lakes, there are cascading rivers with several waterfalls, there are ravines that take hikers up above the mountain streams providing beautiful views of the rivers and the woods. There are beaver dams and ponds. There is Lake Superior, which is beautiful at any time: not just at sunset.

Beautiful colors in the Fall! I think I would enjoy this area – especially this time of year.

Definitely best time to come is Autumn, but summer and winter are not too bad. A little too buggy in the spring.
The U.P. is amazing and not too far to reach on a long weekend.
Very nice, I love this area. It’s much like my home in NE Pennsylvania
I have never been outdoors much in Pennsylvania, but I have heard good things.
Neat collection of photos…all the fall color changes are there..thanks…

Fall colors are the top reason to come here, but there is more to the park than just foliage.
Could this park be any more beautiful?! I am seriously considering a weekend there. Great photo essay, Ted!

Michigan is a beautiful state. It is just a matter of making a little effort to find the beautiful spots.
