Day #129 – Where are the moose?

LOCATION:  Near Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan in northeast part  of the Upper Peninsula
CAMPGROUND:  Bay View National Forest Service.  Very woodsy with only 25 sites.   Right on Lake Superior.  Great beach access. Clean vault toilets.  Some sites have lake view.  Ours does not.  l.  A bit of road noise during the day.  Most sites are a bit tricky to back into.  Ours is long and narrow.  $9/night.  4 stars out of 5
WEATHER:  Picture perfect.  Sunny.   High inland 82; high on the lake 74
DISTANCE DRIVEN:  2 hours

We have enjoyed our 3 nights at Muskallonge Lake State Park.  We said goodbye to our pretty lake view this morning, and were off again, mostly east. 

We drove through an area called “Moose Country of Michigan”, but this is all we saw…

We did spot this sandhill crane…

We arrived in this park in the early afternoon.  It had been highly recommended.  We were a bit disappointed as our particular site does not have a lake view as some of the others do.  Even though I booked this last February, our site was the only one available.  We found a foot path to the beach and enjoyed watching the swimmers and waves.   We are on Whitefish Bay.   Across the bay to our left is Whitefish Point and Paradise, where we visited yesterday; in front of us lies Ontario. 

DINNER:  The pantry, refrigerator, freezer, and wine cellar are all almost empty.  Time to go shopping.  So, tonight was slim pickins’ — leftover beans and rice jazzed up with onions and leftover frozen turkey thighs.  I sprinkled on tortilla chip crumbs for crunch. Frozen green beans on the side. 

Sunset near our campsite…
