We spent last weekend up around Niagra, WI, and
Norway, MI, hiking. What an adventure. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the scenery was breath taking. The Class IV and V rapids on the Menominee River were formidable looking. Especially considering the severe lack of snowfall this year. Here are some photos from the trip.
If you are going to be in the Northwoods or U.P., I highly recommend Niagra, WI, and Norway, MI as must stops. The population in both cities is extremely welcoming and helpful with directions and advice on where to visit.
One city I would avoid is Iron Mountain, MI. My first visit to that city left a bad taste in my mouth. Not only is the traffic unbelievably congested for a city of its size, but I found their visitor center to less than welcoming. The lady promptly informed me that they were closing and I needed to get whatever I was looking for and leave: at around 11:30 in the morning. I got in a quick question on whether the mine tours were open yet, which elicited a snide "not until Memorial Day" comment through a mouthful of what appeared to be a candy bar. She went on to explain that I could probably arrange a special group tour. All-in-all, not the kind of treatment I expected at a visitor center and from a woman of her maturity.
So far Iron Mountain is the only city I have not like in the U.P. Though I should have had a clue of what we were in store for when we pulled up and there were prisoners cleaning up the parking lot and yard and the officer had the expression that he was the one doing the hard time.
