On this windy, cool day, I took one last training hike before heading to Isle Royale to be part of a Moosewatch Expedition.
The misty view from the top of the Empire Bluff Trail
It was in the high 30s, windy and rainy. Perfect weather to train for Isle Royale!
The wildflowers were braving the weather, beginning to show.
The Empire Bluff Trail is one of my favorites to hike in any weather!
