4/13/2016 7:24:57 Barbara Smith   Farmington Hills Homemaker and a follower of Christ Years ago we started close to home--Brighton, Pinckney, etc. Later, moving to Washington State we found trails 100-200 miles from our home in any direction. Those were great vacations with family and those who came to visit. The Cascade Mountains are beautiful and sometimes a great challenge especially for our four year old when he began trekking with us. In 2007 my husband and I followed the Greenstone Ridge on Isle Royale. We covered 50+ miles in 3+ days; we would never try that again that fast. But when you are finished with a hike like that you soon forget how difficult it was and only remember the best parts! As a result, you find yourself planning a new trip as soon as you return home. Another very challenging trip in 2008 was the Jordan River Trail in Northwestern Michigan. It is not so well marked and as I recall has some rather steep climbs along the way. It seems we always realized too late we took too much "stuff"!
