Itís a rocky trail, perfect for an off road tire like a Michelin Pilot Power size 190/50/17 rear and 120/70/17 front  :imaposer:

Came upon this little stream crossing.  What was I to do, Iím on a street bike not a dual sport or dirt bike.  Will I make it across?

Does a bear shit in the woods?  I was relieved to get the Duc back on the tarmac.  Once I arrived back to the tarmac, I saw this sign.  Great.  Luckily, I only had to ride the loose gravel for a few miles.

From Cliff Mine, I continued north to ride a road what can only be described as heavenly.  Five Mile Point road is nothing but curves, roller coaster perfect pavement, and Lake Superiorís beautiful blue waters.

I even rode this stretch of hard packed gravel to practice my TT skills.  Love riding dirt on a non-traction control bike.  No electronic nannies to get in the way of steering with the rear.

Turned around and rode back towards Eagle River, Michigan.  Decided to stop for a drink break at a roadside picnic area named, WC Veale Park.

This monument shows respect to Douglas Houghton, for which the County is named after.
