Lake of the Clouds

Last month we took a ride to the western side of Michigan's Upper Peninsula to visit the Porcupine Mountains. The above lake is called Lake of the Clouds. The colors were peaked, if not beyond peaked, but it was still beautiful.

We had never been to the Porcupine Mountains before. But being a lover of the Big Horn Mountains and the Rocky Mountains, I would say the Porcupine Mountains are really very big hills.

This picture was taken at Summit Peak. That is Lake Superior in the distance. This point is 1,958 feet above sea level. When we are out west in Wyoming, the town of Buffalo is over 4,000 feet above sea level (4,636 to be exact) and it just goes up from there. So like I said the Porkies (the Porcupine Mountains' nickname) are really big beautiful hills!
