We traversed the length of the Au Sable River again from Grayling to Oscoda but we were well behind the racing pace of 14 hours. We took 8 days and did it in weekend installments. I have done the entire length in one week on previous trips but I can see the entire river more often by breaking it up.
June had all of the trees leafed out and the mosquitoes replaced the black flies. We camped on the Summer Solstice with a full moon that night. Wonderful!Since we finished in June we technically beat the Marathon racers coming in July.
