Ascent Trip ReportFrom the state high point we drove about 80 miles to Summit Peak in Ontonagon County. Our goal was the highest point in the Porcupine Mountains, which is also the third highest mountain in Michigan. The trip reports on COHP.org are accurate. Al and I decided to run the 1 mile round trip (just over 10 minutes running) while Eric headed down the road on a four mile downhill run. The run was interesting with about ½ of it on wooden walkways and steps. The viewing platform was crowded and the haze kept us from seeing much of anything. We picked up Eric and headed on our way to Minnesota. 230 miles later we closed out the day in Mountain Iron, MN.
