Nathional Forests/Parks General Anonymous 06/20/14(Fri)21:26 UTC+1 No.336070 Report

I'm going to be working in the Hiawatha National Forest in Michigan's Upper peninsula.

Is anyone familiar with this forest?

I'm looking for some suggestions on cool places to check out while I'm there.

also, subject.

Although i'm not heading up to NMU until this upcoming fall, I have passed through Hiawatha plenty, and I can say it's definitely /out/ approved.

You'll love it for sure. As for places to check out i'd recommend Marquette and Houghton if you've never been up on the U.P before.

Im thinking about a biathlon style trip in Hiawatha this winter with the objective being surviving rather than a PR. Itll be my first backcountry ski trip and im doing my research and training this summer. The trip may last 1 to 2 weeks in december, any resources/ reading on how to do this without perishing would be appreciated.

sounds awesome. I want to go.

Have a good ass sleeping mat. Very important for keeping warm in the winter. Be prepared to be cold and wet the entire time.

You'd be surprised. You have to layer for skiing since you can work up a sweat. Sweat kills. Im trying to be as dry as possible. Combine moisture with wind means hypothermia
