Day 2: Rockwood, NY to Lake Orion, MI (and Niagara Falls)

Early start this morning! Which would have been great, had I not forgotten a part of my Aeropress coffee maker at home… If you know me, you know I need coffee in the morning. And not just any coffee – the more labor that went into the cup, the better.

What do you do when you forget something and you’re in the woods? Make due with what you have!

Coffee: brewed weak

Spirits: Sinking slightly

A four hour drive to the Canadian border, where we stopped to check out Niagara Falls. The amount of water going over these cliffs is mindblowing – a picture doesn’t do it justice. The falls are loud, chaotic, and untamed. They throw mist  into the air hundreds of feet away (surprisingly refreshing, as it was pushing 85 today).

Another four hours back into the U.S.A. and to stay with my family in Lake Orion, MI (thank you, Jaacks!).
