Overlooked Falls: Adventure in the Porcupine Mountains (Part 2 of 4)

Overlooked Falls was definitely one of the nicest parts of our trip. It was simply WONDERFUL to be able to take a break and take off our shoes, sit down on a rock with our feet in the water and RELAX from an hour or more of hiking through straight, dense forest with hordes of mosquitoes hovering overhead (and finding lots of juicy spots all over our bodies). While the weather was beautiful, not terribly hot, there was a heavy, more humid feel in the forest, which instantly cleared up to cooler, breath-freshening air once we came out of the forest and into waterfall clearing.

Waterfalls are just one of the many beautiful things the Porcupine Mountains has to offer. For our next trip to the Porcupine Mountains, we will definitely be spending more exploring the park's different waterfalls. However, other parts of the park have just as much to offer. It just depends on what you like to do and what you want to see. We saw people fishing, probably for brook trout. We might even bring our fishing poles on the next trip, depending on whether we're straight backpacking or doing more of a light backpacking/camping combo.
