Highpoint: Michigan. Mt. Arvon (1979 ft). July 31, 2010

The last leg of our highpointing trip begins...

Michigan's highpoint, Mt. Arvon, lies in the Upper Peninsula near L'Anse. Rumor has it that this peak used to be difficult to locate, due to the myriad of logging roads that encircle and cross the mountain. When we arrived, however, we found the way well marked by signs such as the one below. The signs, combined with the excellent directions posted on, made this highpoint easy to find.

I carefully drove my car up the bumpy, gravel road to the parking area, then the girls and I walked the easy half mile to the summit.

Not much to say about this one. There aren't any views to enjoy, other than the surrounding trees. After a few minutes of chomping our lunch, we ambled back down to the car.

Next stop: Illinois.
