Segment 6, Day 2 Traverse City->Elk Rapids 17 miles
High of 57
I walked through Traverse City along the bottom of the bay, then headed north up the East Traverse Bay. The shoreline here was anchored by large rocks, and below those was muck, not sandy. This kept me on the road for another day, but 31 stayed along the bay most of the way to Elk Rapids.
The rain had moved off, and I enjoyed walking the countryside and seeing all the tiny cherries on the trees. When I finally got to Elk Rapids, I noticed a man suspended on the water tower. He was power washing the dirt and grime off of the surface. Quite a job!
