buggy and hot, oh well

hey, don't feel bad wheel....i am not sure these are even black flies now...one gets conflicticing information...at union bay...these critters look like common house flies...they will swarm you and get in masses on your legs and bite the dickens out of you...at the park they say they are stable flies...lady at fort wilkins says that black flies are like knats that swarm and bite...any way...these horrid critters are , or seem only to be here at union bay....
we went to ashland, wisconsin and it is a beautiful place...

it is hotter than the devil in texas 92 today/...forecast calls for cooler and rain... sure hope so

we went to copper harbor to check out our next destination and that area is truly beautiful...can't wait to move up there...eagle harbor is espically beautiful....

praying for rain and heat relief here........it is too much like texas now

if we can get past the 90 degrees today...it is supposed to cool back to the 70's...i have really ben enjpying the UP...but this is souring my entire outlook on Michigan........


headed for copper harbor next week,,,what do i need to expect
Right at the moment we are about 150 miles north of you in the Minnesota Arrowhead (north of Lake Superior) and it's in the 90's here, too. Mosquitoes and black flies not too terrible, though. Always travel with plenty of bug repellent.

Supposed to cool off tomorrow but looks like it's going to rain on everyone's Fourth of July parades. You should be a lot happier in Copper Harbor as the lake moderates the temperatures plus you will probably get a cooling onshore breeze. Lake Superior is big, deep, and cold all year around.

Black flies arrive in bunches called "hatches" but fortunately don't stay around too long. Sounds like you were unlucky enough to be there for a hatch. Welcome to the north woods. . .

What are "the porkies", anyway?

then off to sault st marie and a stay at the asune osborne camp on the st mary's river watching the big freighters move up and down...beautiful area...rained and was in the 50's and 60's...my kind of weather...

then to munising and the pictuure rocks and grand marais and the pasties at muldoons...the au train river and lake...gladstone and escanaba,...just beautiful...seney wildlife tour.....and the city rv park right on lake superior....windy and cold, cold...but great....went to marquett and then to big bay....went to the garden penisula and to fayette state park.....Fairport and point detour
