  • “Isle Royale Sojourn,” backpacking the Greenstone Ridge Trail

    One thousand feet below us, Isle Royale National Park was all we could see. Bruce and I had visited Isle Royale before. But previous visits had been weekend treks centered on day hikes. This time, we would thru-hike the Greenstone Ridge, a 43-mile trail that traces the length of the park's largest island, Isle Royale.
