|Mount Ojibway Tower - we hiked here on our day "off"|

Three Mile was kind of similar, and even had a small secondary dock right out front, but there was a neighboring shelter that was a little closer than I would have liked.

I actually ended up with extra food at the end of the trip, which I was okay with. It gave me options to eat throughout the week, so it wasn’t like, “Ugghh…I guess I’ll have another power bar…” Nevertheless, we were all still craving “real” food by the end of the trip. Fortunately for us, there is actually a restaurant on the island. Yep. In Rock Harbor. There is a “lodge” of sorts there, and also a little restaurant where they serve real, hot, cooked to order food. We had this in mind as we hiked our last day back to Rock Harbor. We made sure that we left early enough in the morning that we could stop at the restaurant for lunch before heading back to the mainland on the ferry. We all decided on a delicious cheeseburger, and were not disappointed!
