In the 1970s my brothers; Wesley, Ken, and I were given the freedom by our parents to take extended backpacking and canoeing trips on Isle Royale National Park. We went almost every year for 2 weeks at a time while our parents enjoyed their own vacation in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. In 2006 it was time to share the experience with my own children and in 2007 my wife Patty came along as well. Of course they all loved it just as much as I did and I think we will be heading back soon! In this photo Journal I Have posted photography from our recent 2007 trip to Isle Royale. Eventually I will try to add photos from about a dozen other Isle Royale adventures going all the way back to around 1974. Enjoy!
