The two RV Gypsies finally made it to the suspension bridge, and then walked the Lake Superior Trail all the way to Lake Superior, where they relaxed and cooled down in the very cold Lake Superior.

The two RV Gypsies were a bit tired when they reached the suspension bridge, but they were still eager to continue.

Just before reaching Lake Superior, the reflections in Presque Isle River were fantastically beautiful. They had to wonder why the water was so calm here, because it is the water that is flowing down from the three waterfalls that they had just visited.

The roots of a tree formed a knotty formation on the riverbank that the two RV Gypsies found interesting.

Finally approaching Lake Superior, Lee took a panorama of the area.

Driftwood, logs and tree trunks surrounded the area and gave people a great opportunity to climb on the logs.

So Karen looked through the opening - Hey, it's like the periscope of a submarine.

Lee decided to join Karen in the cold waters of Lake Superior, or at least get his feet and legs wet for an instant or two.

Lee stuck the camera under the water and got some weird photos. The two RV Gypsies kept their shoes on because of the big and uneven rocky bottom of Lake Superior.

The rocky bottom of Lake Superior. The waves kept pushing Karen towards the shore.

The waves splashed against the logs and then onto Karen. She thought it was fun and laughed a lot.

Then it was time to walk back over the Suspension Bridge and head back to the car. The two RV Gypsies were quite hungry. They did not realize that this would be such a long hike, nor that it would take several hours. They crossed the suspension bridge again and this time, they found their way to a parking lot and then walked the road up to where they had parked their car. They really did not want to go back the way they came.
