To Garnet Lake, Superior State Forest, MI

I followed the Hiawatha Tour bike route shown on my maps.  It took me down highways that had low traffic and good shoulders.  There was only one hill; otherwise flat farmland and pine forests with a ferny understory.

I stopped for lunch in Rudyard and talked with the diner's owner.  He gave me a bumper sticker that says I ate there.

I passed a bunch of campgrounds too early in the afternoon... I was bound for one in the Lake Superior State Forest.  It has no shower but does have a water pump, so I was able to wash.  The wildlife around the lake is very vocal!  The crowd of mosquitos hovering above my tent was so loud it almost kept me awake.
