June Campout - Backcountry Hiking

Heard of the sleeping bears?  North Manitou Island is one of the bears that inspired the Indian legend that gave the Sleeping Bear Dunes their name.  If you don't remember, North and South Manitou Islands are the two cubs that swam across Lake Michigan with their mother, fleeing a forest fire in Wisconsin.  The main dune on the shore is the mother, who laid down to wait for her cubs.  The cubs never made it to shore, and the mother lies waiting for them still.

Want to go sailing?  Of course, living in the Great Lakes State, this has to have come up.  The BSA Michigan Crossroads Council owns a 52-foot sailboat called Retriever that is based in Mackinaw City and that may be the perfect answer to expanding our Michigan horizons.  More details to come.  For now, this is just to get the word out.  We are targeting Aug 6 - 11.  We will have to make a reservation very soon, so check your calendars and sign up on the registration page.  Look for more information soon.
