Segment 7 Complete!

Segment 7 took me from St. Ignace in Michigan's Upper Peninsula all the way to Escanaba, June 2-11. It mapped out at 161 miles and took 10 days. This was the longest segment of the trek. I'm taking two days off in Escanaba before I head south into Wisconsin.

The total now stands at 663 miles. My Lake Trek hat is showing the miles!

Thanks for following my adventure.


  1. Hey Loreen, This is a fantastic blog and a fantastic trip. I wrote a book The Dynamic Great Lakes, but its focus is what lies beneath the waters. It's a green book.

  2. whoo hooo!! You've come a long way babeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Your UP pix have been VERY enticing. Might have to rethink my Superior trip plans (in 5 years) to include some of that. Nice choice of shots. Now I've got fam going to drive around the lake this summer. If you venture up into Door County, please go to the Swedish Restaurant with goats on the roof. My neighbor's been there on both his drives around the lake and other folks ask me if you're going must be a real tourista stop!

    Hope you find a place to get a nice massage and rest those feet!

    See you soon!
