This is "Big Snow Country," a skier's paradise that gets more than 200 inches of snowfall a year. The extensive serves available are one of the reasons the Wakefield Chamber of Commerce sponsors the North Country Century: to get more people to visit this incredible land during the summer and fall. The tour also includes 30-mile and 100-kilometer routes. The roll along the shore of Lake Gogebic brings the shimmering blue of the UP's largest lake into the mix of woods and sky. If you haven't been there before, the vastness of the forest and the sparse population are a bit hard to get used to. Your chances of seeing fox, coyote, bear, deer, raccoon, and porcupine are good, and one thing is certain: The UP has the most waterfalls per capita of any place in the United States.
