Plenty of snow
We get around 300 inches of snow a year. There are a variety of ways to enjoy the snow. Overall the roads stay in pretty good shape. But you do have to pay attention to conditions during our long winters.
Precaution must be taken while camping in the UP. A variety of animals will take any food they can find. Be careful even if the theives are cute.
The rivers in the UP are full of adventure. But you must learn to treat wildlife with respect. This rather large snapping turtle was encoutered during a kayaking trip on the Snake river.
Summers are wonderful. But beware of the variety of insects found up here. UPpers always find a way to manage the situation.
