The next morning was wet, but I still stopped to read informative signs.

A small waterfall alongside of the road.

Breakfast at the Harbor Town Cafe in Ontonagon, Michigan.

During my visit to the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Michigan, I stopped at this mining cave along the road.

I could only go in a few dozen feet.  There was quite a bit of water coming out of the mine.

A hike to an overlook provided the following two pictures, with this panel describing what can be seen from this point.

Lake of the Clouds.

Looking southwest from the viewpoint.

Summit Peak Tower Trail leads to this tower at the highest point in the park, 1958 feet.

Very pretty views can be observed in all directions.

There were many nice waterfalls throughout the park.

Though no sign was posted, this is where I enter the Central Time Zone, my seventh time zone crossing!
