Our good friend and guest contributor Mikael Kennedy has been out on the road a lot over this past year on various projects. From across the USA to the Eastern side of Canada, I don't know anyone else who loves the open road quite like he does. Mikael's adventures always manage to leave us feeling inspired and energized to go and explore. He wanted to share some of his recent Polaroid work from Wolverine Traveler.
On June 11th, 2013 Wolverine Boots sent me and Blaine out on an adventure into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan towards Isle Royale, the least visited National Park in the Continental United States, an ecological preserve 50 some miles off in the middle of Lake Superior. For years I'd heard rumors of Isle Royale's wild empty woods and wolf pack roaming free. This was our journey there and back, we wandered as I do best with little more than a point as a destination on the map and unknown roads in between. 1649 Miles by car, 224 miles by float plane, 72 miles on a 4 Wheeler, 18 miles by motor boat, and 2 Miles by Canoe.
