Those gave me some great ideas. My trip would most likely be more like your trip. The circumnavigation was pretty ambitious. Not only did they go around the island (100 miles in 5 days) they paddled over from Minnesota and back to the mainland. My skill set is not up to that..... yet.
You guys looked like you had a lot of fun.
BTW, I got my B.S in Botany from the University of Michigan. I then went to Michgan State for my degree in Golf Course Maintenance (hence Turfboy) I had not thought about cataloging the plants I see on a trip. I also haven't thought of a Maple as an Acer rubrumin
quite a while. Usually I think more in terms of Poa pratensis
or Agrostis stolinifera
