Wow – Chuck Hayden just finished quite a Pure Michigan adventure! Check out his story about just one leg of his epic journey.
It was 5:30 am and I had just roused myself from a fitful sleep to the birth of a new sunrise. The previous day, Lake Superior had heaved me on to the rocky shore of Salt Point between Tahquamenon Bay and the Bay Mills area. During the night, as I slept in the sandy grass of the beach, sheltered from the wind by my kayak, she calmed to a light wind. Now, as I prepared to launch my kayak, I was sure I could finish the last 20 miles before noon. The lake wasn’t completely calm, but after 3 days of rough seas, she was offering me a little peace and I urgently took the offer.
