North Manitou Island
Hiking the shoreline
I had perfect weather while on the island. No rain and warm nights. Can't ask for any more than that when you're camping!

Ahhhh...a fire, a mug of hot tea, and a NYer!
There are two gorgeous barns on the island.
There used to be a couple hundred people living and working on these islands, and remnants of that time still exists.

Markers on the island tell you when you are "Entering Wilderness"!
North Manitou is mostly wilderness. When you leave the village area, markers let you know that you are entering wilderness where deer run and coyote yip at night.
