As I am packing up I will breakfast on steel cut oats that had been soaking in water all night in a sealed jar. After the first hour of biking I was happy to hit Milaca. This town has around 3000 people and I had no problem finding a breakfast spot.
The Paul Bunyan State Trail is multi-use path totaling 120 miles. I will be going 63 miles north to Walker. I am sure in the winter this is popular for snowmobiling. We have many trails in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that gets a lot of winter trail traffic. The Burlington Northern Railroad opened this area.
This tower was built in 1935 and is on the National Register of Historical Sites.
It is common for hikers and cycle touring riders to send items to general delivery for re-stocking. You can also lighten your load sending things home that you are not using. The next town was Hackensack and I see in the history it is named after the New Jersey town. It is common to see names of eastern towns in the midwest when people migrated west and settled again using the same name for their new home.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
