Lake of the Clouds at the northern end of the Porcupine Mountains was a Must-Visit spot for our UP in the Fall trip this year
In Michigan's Upper Peninsula, autumn means an explosion of colors, cool temperatures, gorgeous sunsets and a special time to enjoy the beauty of God's country.
That's why we scheduled our Roadtreking Fall Foliage Boondocking Adventure for October, held in the Porcupine Wilderness State Park. We arrived in peak color and experienced wildly fluctuating temperature. On Monday it was in the low 70's F. Wednesday saw a cold front come through with temperatures that dropped to the upper 30's overnight.
By Thursday when the gathering ended, the color had peaked and a stiff northwest wind of Lake Superior was quickly starting to blow the leaves away. We spent our time hiking, taking photos, visiting around warm campfires and throughly enjoying one of the largest true wilderness tracts east of the Mississippi.
