Teachers look forward to vacations just like their students. Jane was no exception. She loved teaching, but lately, she had been extremely busy. She wanted to take advantage of this short relaxing holiday weekend. She and her husband loved hiking and nature. Hiking in the natural forests of their home state of Michigan was perfect for both of them, so they put it together and made plans to hike the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan?s Upper Peninsula with a couple of friends. They all took an extra day off work and were going to do this over the long Labor Day weekend. Michigan?s Upper Peninsula was a beautiful place, and the Porcupine Mountains were magnificent. Jane?s uncle talked about it all the time. He had been there. He even gave her a map. She expected to hike the same trails as he did fifty years ago. It should have been a relaxing walk through one of the most pristine forests of Michigan?s Upper Peninsula. It wasn?t!
