On occasion, we discover a location that holds so much interest to us that we end up spending the entire day there. Slate River, located east of L’Anse, Michigan, is one of those places. This wild, isolated river gave us the chance to explore. We trudged up river, climbed and slid down high gorge walls and waded across extremely slippery and oddly angled rocks. In one day, Slate River has become, without a doubt, my favorite river in Michigan.
