Grand Island

For the last two nights of our trip we headed over to Grand Island, to do our last bit of backpacking.  The island was wonderfully quiet and provided beautiful views of Pictured Rocks from across Lake Superior.  We stayed a night on either side of the island and saw a beautiful sunset over the water and had the beach completely to ourselves. I think Grand Island is another one of Michigan's beautiful destinations that is a very well kept secret.  We were warned that bears are very friendly on the island, but were lucky enough to keep our campsite bear free for our two nights. 

 I loved this campsite right on the beach.  The night we stayed here we were able to watch a lightning storm over Lake Superior- so beautiful!
