Day Eleven – Ashland WI to Gaylord MI
Miles: 425.1
Elapsed Time: 10:24

We didn’t get the earliest start after a long night at the brewery but we started in the rain after a breakfast at the local greasy spoon. We had big plans to tour the UP area but with the less than optimal weather conditions we decided Just head towards home and save the UP for another time when we could really do it right. We stopped at a roadside park along US2 and a couple of times on the shores of Lake Michigan. We stopped for a pic at the Mackinac Bridge just like we did in 1998 and the weather had turned much better although still cold. We were very tired but continued on and when it started getting dark and the rain started again we said let’s stop and spend the night. We happened to be in Gaylord and pulled into the Hampton Inn for the evening. Fortunately we found some good craft beer nearby and called it a night.
