Last week, we the Bogrimot, went on a five day tiyul to Wilderness State park and Pictured Rocks in the upper peninsula of Michigan. As we drove up to Pictured rocks we had the unique experience of seeing three Great Lakes in one day.
While at Pictured Rocks we spent two nights camping along the lakefront of Lake Superior. We back-packed to our campsites which included all of our supplies. Carrying everything was very difficult but in the end it was also very rewarding. Although we were split into two groups, we met up at Chapel Rock Beach, ate lunch and swam in Lake Superior together on the third day. Being in such a beautiful place with the entire kvutzah was so special.
The last leg of our Tiyul included driving back to Wilderness State Park campsites where we watched the sunset over Lake Michigan as a whole kvutzah. At some moments we felt hot, tired, and itchy and all we wanted was to go back to machaneh!
At the end of the day having this amazing experience is something we will remember and treasure forever.
