Upper Peninsula Michigan photos and report

Kayak season has begun up here in the U.P. The L'anse area is the starting point for flows. Here is a quick write up and some shots from two of the local rivers. Just breaking up the rust so I'll be ready for the CO goods. Guessing by the time I get there early May everything will be ready to explode.

That's great! Nice to see what the opportunities are in good ole Michigan. I was a troll for 27 years

Nice, makes me wish I'd taken up kayaking when I lived in Houghton.

I used to paddle in the L'anse/Baraga area a fair amount back in the mid nineties.. When I knew I was moving west I went up there three straight weekends to try and get my fill. I didn't work. The Silver is really a nice run.

Thanks fore the pics.
