    • Thank you so much for visiting! Best wishes on your PCT/ Oregon hike. Take the bug spray! ;)

  1. I am Gene from Kalamazoo, Mi. 2011 was the summer that by Border Collie Dakota and I hiked the entire Lake Superior Coastal Trail. Not sure if you’ve done this one or not. It is beautiful, demanding at times, so peaceful and of course a great adventure. If you haven’t tried it, give it a try if ever get the chance. Even portions of it are an experience, if you don’t have time for it all. Have to mention I am 67. Felt pretty proud of myself. Keep hiking and stay safe.

    • H Gene! I enjoyed reading your note. I am soooo happy every time I hear that seniors are out hiking! I hear good things about the LST, but have not done it. It’s on my bucket list though! ;) I am also a big fan of dogs and think they make wonderful travel/ hiking companions. I know Dakota must have had a blast! Keep going, Gene!

  2. Just read your about Gail section….this is Gene from Kalamazoo, Mi. again. Yes, hiking the Lake Superior Coastal Trail was a lot better experience with my dog Dakota along for company. His little legs had to go at least twice as far as I did, with his checking out all the different smells along the trail. I was glad to hear you you had done the Michigan shore to shore trail, and Isle Royale. Aren’t they both great? Lots of good trails in Michigan to hike. Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, which I’m sure you’re familiar with are going to adding more trails for hiking, and biking in the near future. If ever in that area, check some of them out. Keep hiking, and safe. Gene
