I’ll start with the summary. Isle Royale, an island in the far northwest corner of Lake Superior, is an amazing, spectacular place.
That observation of Michigan’s only national park came after I had completed a five-day backpacking/hiking adventure in early August with an old college friend, Ray Skowronski. He’s a retired high school science teacher from Maryland, originally from Saginaw. We met in the cafeteria during our first week as students at Northern Michigan University in Marquette in August 1978.
