The weather was unseasonably warm for Michigan’s Upper Peninsula but that didn’t stop more than 50 Roadtrekers from taking dog sled rides, snowshoeing, hiking, socializing and playing outdoors during our third annual January campout.
The daytime temperatures reached 37 degrees and the near three feet of snow on the ground was a bit slushy but no one seemed to mind. There was even a snow fog in the woods.
As usual, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources folks plowed out sites for us in the beautiful Lower Falls campground. They also provided snowshoes for us to use.
Here’s a video recap of the weekend. And, yes, we’ll be back in 2018 to do it all over again.

Thank you so much for this! It takes me back to winter of 1957, when our family enjoyed frozen Tahquamenon. I was ten years old, and it is still my favorite vacation ever! We crossed the straits on the icebreaker Vacationland. Tahquamenon was Dad’s favorite spot on earth. He always said his prayer was, “Lord, I know that someday you’re going to destroy this old earth and make it new. But would you please save this one little spot for me?” The falls were almost completely frozen over, and we walked behind them. One spot was like a little throne room with a golden floor. I have dozens more photos!
