We had originally planned to spend 3 days hiking in the Porcupine Mountains but our time in the motel meant we were able to watch the Weather Channel...which predicted 3 straight days of flood inducing storms in the mountains. As we only had a tent, we decided to abandon our plans and try to find an alternative. We drove 4 hours back to Mackinaw City on the lower side of the Mackinac Bridge.
We found a campground right on Lake Huron and got a spot right on the beach.
We could see the Mackinac Bridge from our campsite.
We were so tired from all the driving that we just sat around, had a beer and listened to classic rock radio.
