I would like to do this trip. In early '04, I went up to Ashland, WI with two other photog friends, hit the ice caves at the Apostle Islands and then went around Lake Superior (clockwise) as far as Grand Marais, MN. It was one of the best photo trips I've ever experienced,...except for the camera problems. I had a Nikon F4 and an FM and both failed. The F4 failed on the very first attempt at a photograph on that initial cold morning of our trip (-15 F) in Ashland. The FM seemed fine but it wasn't until I got my 13 rolls of slide film back that I realized it really wasn't. Save for perhaps 20 images, the rest of the film was blank. So I need to get back up there again. -Marc
