It made me wonder how often the trails are changed.
In last year’s blog, I wrote about how Julie had wanted to come back to Isle Royale since she was a teenager and some twenty or more years ago, planned a trip that later fell through. At that time, she purchased a map of the island with the intention of having it framed after she returned from the trip. Even though the trip never happened, she hung onto the map. In 2011, she finally got to cross the island, but it wasn’t until 2012 that we took the map to get it framed.
We had it open on a table (it’s nearly five feet long) and I noticed something interesting: twenty years ago, the west side of the Feldtmann Trail was very different than it is now. Below are pictures of the current trail and what it looked like in the eighties and early nineties.
