Ascent Trip Report

This was the eighth stop on a highpointing trip. Along the way we stopped at a Wisconsin Cheese Factory. It was an easy walk on a short trail that lead to a large observation tower. The view from the top of the tower was clear and went on for miles. After leaving Timm's Hill we headed into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to bag Mount Arvon. We arrived at night and unfortunately got lost trying to navigate the logging roads. They were definitely more than my Honda Accord could handle. We stopped for the night and slept in the car. When we woke the next morning it started raining and we decided to leave since the bumpy dirt roads were only going to get worse and I was afraid we might get stuck. After finally navigating out of the logging roads we ate the Triangle Restaurant in McMilian, Michigan then continued onto Detroit, Michigan where we spent the night.
