Hiking Stories with Emily the Yooper

Emily was Katie's roommate in a small apartment up in Houghton for a year before moving into the Houghton house with Jacob, Katie, and Dave (and some other peeps, it was a big house). Originally from Marquette, Emily enjoyed the outdoors and came along on several adventures including a fall camping trip to Big Erick's.
