LAKE IN THE CLOUDS SUPERIOR TRAIL MICHIGAN
|Lake in the Clouds North Country Trail Michigan|
After Leaving the Presque Isle River we went to visit the superior Trail and venture over to lake in the clouds to see the vistas and the kettle lake left by a glacier from the last ice age.

The Superior trail is interesting as it takes you up to various vistas that overlook Lake Superior and the valleys below. The section of the trail that we were on appeared to be pretty typical but reminded me a bit of Alabama with the rolling hills and the vegetation surrounding encapsulating the region. The lake in the Clouds was a lot more scenic than I thought

It was very touristy and set up with concrete walkways and a large parking lot full of weekenders but the view of Mirror Lake was spectacular. We walked around thinking about how this was a clear cut example of glacier erosion and how interesting this destination can be when the leaves are changing in the fall.

I can see why this is a choice location for people on vacation and sites seeing but if you can just get a bit off the beaten path you can nestle yourself in a nice little spot away from the tourists and enjoy the dry fresh pine smell, the warm summer weather and the valley winds of Lake in the Clouds.
