    Glad everyone's interested in the Rocks area. I'm looking forward to exploring back along H-58 towards Grand Marais. It's been a lot of years since I've been along there.

    Thanks for all the information, Marc! I'm looking at all the options, but also think it might be best to try to book somewhere where others are as well. I'll see if I can't get a group discount somewhere, but not sure we'll have enough. I'll post back if and when I find anything.

    Yep, I agree. I'm actually not sure where the 'base camp area' is. I just threw the Munising thing out there. I love H-58! Last time I was there was before it was paved. Once, I was parked along side H-58 taking some pics when a coyote came slowly loping out of the woods and calmly went right by me about 20 feet away but never stopping. He/she just kinda looked at me and kept on truckin'. It was cool. No pics, though, as it was getting dark and I had Kodachrome 25 in my old Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super BC. Thanks for all you're doing, Bill. Haven't seen you in a while. Can't wait to get on the road (finally).

    H-58 is paved!?! It HAS been a long time for me. Yes, Marc... it will be good to see you and everyone that comes.

    I just looked at the Days Inn and they seem to have plenty of rooms at 89.00 per night. Still looking... I think Munising is the best bet for convenience, choice of eateries, etc. Jim is close by too.

    Anyone know if the "Dog Patch" is still there? Used to be great for breakfast.

    OK... I checked with Days Inn and they will give us a group rate of at least 79.00 per room. I wasn't able to speak with the manager until the morning and I'm told she might give us a better deal. We can also make use of a breakfast room in the evening if we want to show prints, etc. It looks clean and up to date and they have free internet, a pool, sauna, hot tub, etc. We could have a rollicking good time.

    Let me speak with the manager in the morning and see what she'll do for us. I'll post as soon as I know. If this happens, book your room saying you are with North Light Workshops and you'll get the rate we are quoted.

    Ha! The Dog Patch! That's where Keith (Iceland) and I would start our days on our trips up there. http://www.dogpatchrestaurant.com/

    Another tidbit: I haven't been up in the area since Miner's Castle had two peaks.

    Days Inn sounds great!

    Excellent!! That'll be my breakfast haunt.

    Ditto on the Miner's Castle peaks. Back in the mid-70's I used to hike the trail a lot before it was a NP (Called the Munising Walk then...) and we were able to scale those towers. I actually have a picture of myself sitting atop the one that is no longer! Glad it waited and hope I wasn't the cause.

    Wow. Can you imagine? That would have been some death-ride into Lk Superior! Would love to see your pic!

    So is Thursday, 10/6 day one? Tom and I will coming in from Batchawana Bay, Ontario on Wednesday night, I believe.

    I'm in. (but I'll be away and out of email range for the next three days.) I'm definitely interested in a night or two at the Days Inn.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
