Six point nine miles

Chapel Lake, view west across south end.

Today’s adventure was a loop walk around Chapel Lake, in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The breeze was offshore and we could hear the wind in the canopy as we walked through the mostly maple woods. We saw two little snakes (snakelets?; possibly hatched this year?; one probably garter/garden; other unknown), no fur bearers, only a few other hiker/walkers, no campers, many chipmunks. Notable plant species include Doll’s Eyes and moosewood (no time to find links). We also saw Chapel Rock.

    So chipmunks are not fur bearers? They are cute though. We have a couple of pictures of chippies from our trip last summer to the Pictured Rocks.

    Of course chipmunks are furry, but not usually trapped and stripped of their pelts….
