Backpacking the Porcupine Mtns.

En route to camp  / A bear sculpture I found far in the woods.

This last weekend 4 friends and myself took to Michigan's Upper Peninsula for some fun in the woods.  The trip was the 2nd annual "Gents in Tents" -- now known for plenty of backwoods tom-foolery, but with an uplifting slant.  We've been known to pray for and check-in on each other when life's been tough for one of the guys.  It's been a great resource for those "bumpy" times.  I'm grateful for each of these guys and hope everyone will at some point have friends like these.
