A Visit to the Wilds of Wisconsin & Michigan’s Upper Peninsula
Ted, a Chicago based outdoor adventurer, travel writer and the fellow behind the popular blog Traveling Ted is the one responsible for this weeks’ reader photos. On his blog you can read about his adventures skiing, hiking and canoeing in the US as well as to some of the world’s wilder places like Guyana. You can also check out his guest post on my site about a canoe trip through Quetico Provincial Park in Ontario. For more adventure you can follow along with Ted via Twitter and Facebook too.
This week Ted takes you on a visit to the northwoods of Wisconsin and to the wilds of the Upper Peninsula in Michigan.
Chicago is a beautiful city, but it is not widely known for its adventure. In order to find good backpacking, canoeing, and skiing, it is necessary to head north to Wisconsin and the attached Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There you can find the beautiful northwoods with clean rivers with rapids, gorgeous hiking trails, fishing, and good cross-country and downhill skiing.
Here’s a look at the scenery you’ll encounter along the way.
