Ubicación

Ontonagon, Michigan, Estados Unidos

I am 15 miles east of the Porcupine State Park, Michigan's largest state park. Ontonagon County is a land of forests, waterfalls and Lake Superior shoreline. A hiking destination during the short summer, it also offers skiing in the longer winter. For backpackers and serious hikers I recommend the set of maps issued by the forestry service for the Ottawa National Forest. These are the only maps I know of which include hundreds of national forest roads, lakes, rivers and streams in Ontonagon County. They include all roads, including many missing from highway and GPS maps. Cellphone reception is sketchy in many areas. (Want to hide out? Or perhaps do you want to get out once you've gotten in? The second would be the one for me. These are the maps to get!) There is an eastern, a central, a southern and a western map: four in all. The western one includes the Porcupine State Park. National Forest Road No. 400, for example, is the only way to reach Cascade Falls. The GPS and cellphone maps, by contrast, do not give satisfactory detail. You may also notice that highway signs for the waterfalls are sometimes missing or misleading. The forestry service has at least three offices in the area. One is in Bessemer 60 miles away on Hwy. 2. Another is on Hwy. 45 in Watersmeet 48 miles south of Ontonagon. That office is south of the intersection of Hwy. 2 and 45. The closest one to Ontonagon is about three miles south of town (on the left going south) on Hwy. 45.

My house is a 20 minute walk to Lake Superior. In case you fish or canoe, I am a half block from the Ontonagon River, which is the Upper Peninsula's largest river. There is a boardwalk leading from nearby Zinc Street through the park to the riverside quay. From there one might walk on Rose Island down to Lake Superior. Of course, one could also continue on Zinc Street through the back streets and get to the lake as well. River Street parallels Rose Island and this is Ontonagon's commercial and entertainment hub, though the supermarket and dollar stores are on Hwy. 38. The Eagle Club and the VFW bar/restaurants are open to visitors as well as the other commercial establishments on nearby River St. Every bar and restaurant offers Wi-fi (as well as the public library and laundromat). I personally prefer the spaciousness and lighting of the VFW and the Eagles Club (Stubbs and Shamrock bars are rather dark, though pool is offered at Stubbs and on Thursday nights there is a pool competition. Roxy's is my preferred bar simply because it offers good hamburgers and fries. It is a little quirk at places such as Roxy's and Syl's restaurants that they do not serve pickles with sandwiches unless the customer asks for them. If you want your onions grilled and your buns grilled, Roxey's will do that but remember to request it). If you go to Syl's, don't go there for its coffee, which is extremely weak and will set you back $1.65 before taxes and tips. There is a new restaurant on River Street called the UP North Cafe (a pun on Upper Peninsula). The closest coffee and sandwich place is Connie's, which is a two block walk down South Steel St. to River Street. It has a take out window and some chairs outside. This place along with the Holiday gas station across the street are the only two public establishments with good coffee. Holidays usually has an online coupon for 69-cent coffee. It is sad that in the United States unlike Europe, coffee is only an afterthought at bars (but the most reliably good coffee is at my house anyhow according to Ontonagon's 'best place to have coffee' list ten years running). All places mentioned above are within 20 minutes' walk of my house.

Ontonagon is 110 miles west of Marquette, 75 miles north of Eagle River (100 miles from Minocqua ) , and 65 miles east of Ironwood. No fast food restaurants around for 50 miles. Environmentalists should know that no local stores promote recycling in any way. However, 28 miles south of us Settler's Co-op grocery store in Bruce Crossing refunds customers a nickel for each bag they bring in to use for their groceries. Shop there on the way up!

Former military translator dude in Iraq for marines and later for the Navy Seals in Bahrain. Studied Arabic in Georgetown Univ. and Russian at Middlebury College. I lived in Iran and learned Persian. I have also lived in Libya, Malaysia, Bulgaria and Albania. The Albanians are among the friendliest and most hospitable people I have ever met (which is saying a lot since I have generally felt at home wherever I have lived). I was born in Detroit, but grew up a Badger despite my Wolverine beginnings. Later on I lived in Wallingford, Connecticut, Washington, D.C. and Austin, Texas. I enjoy reading. I like the BBC World News and Sky News. I listen to Fresh Air.
