After leaving whitefish point I made my way to tahquamenon falls
I was more impressed with the upper falls than the lower. After spending a bit of time walking around doing the tourist type thing at the falls I figured I was time for some more dirt roads and trails. I set my gps to shortest distance to
Grand Marais, Mi. Most of these roads are nothing more than sandy 2 track through the woods in the UP. It almost seems like there is two types of dirt roads. Some are wide enough for two fullsize vehicles to pass going in opposite directions like these.
Then my gps showed these as roads as well. I wouldn't consider these a much of a road as more as 2 track.
Lots of sand in the UP, the pine forest in some of these area's smelled great to ride thru.
Luckly I made it onto a dirt road that followed Lake Superior for a bit. Stopped here to enjoy the view for a bit.
Not another person in sight.
Almost looks like the ocean.
Can you spot the hiding klr?
More fall colors
Grand sable lake just outside of Grand Marais. This is where road H58 starts, the eastern half is a fun twisty road worth riding. Its all freshly paved, I had heard that it use to be sand and dirt. I won't pass up a good twisty paved road.
Fall colors along H58.
Up next Pictures rocks national shoreline.
2300 miles on a 250 all for a sticker
