After my time hiking Isle Royale with a MooseWatch Team (which I'll blog about soon), I spoke at three libraries in the eastern U.P.
Bayliss Public Library is in Sault Ste. Marie, so I spent some time watching the freighters move through the Soo Locks.
Best snack spread ever!
Audience at Bayliss
With Head Librarian of Les Cheneaux Library, Jane French

And I had a third engagement at Engadine Public Library. Thanks to everyone who came out to hear about the islands of our Great Lakes.
