Welcome to my obsessive planning that went into a 5 day backpacking trip! As you know I am heading to Isle Royale, an island located northwest of Lake Superior, off the state of Michigan, with my dad and boyfriend.
After months of planning, we finally will begin our journey on Sunday!
We will take a 12 hour car ride from Cincinnati to Copper Harbor and stay the night in King Copper Motel. Monday, we will take a 3 hour boat ride on Isle Royale Queen IV at 8am. Once we arrive at Rock Harber we will begin our adventure!
Check out the hiking plan, food and gear list below! :)

Monday: Rock Harbor to Daisy Farm - 7.1 miles
Tuesday: Daisy Farm to McCargoe Cove - 8.2 miles
Wednesday: McCargoe Cove to Moskey Basin - 8.4 miles
