Segment 7 Day 10 Top of Little Bay de Noc->Escanaba 17 mile
High of 76 degrees. July 11
On this final day of Segment 7, I walked along the top of Little Bay de Noc, then south to Escanaba. I crossed over several rivers along the way, the Whitefish River being the largest one. The town of Gladstone had a nice waterfront and even a boardwalk through part of the wetlands there.
It felt fantastic to reach Escanaba, and the last few miles I was able to stay close to the water (though on the shoulder of the road). I even saw a swan with two signets.
I'm taking two days off before heading south along Green Bay for the beginning of Segment 8.
