I love the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!
I have been to 45 of our states and this area is one of the most beautiful.
The water along Lake Superior is truly magnificent and such a lovely turquoise shade of blue.
This little map shows the UP. We can either drive over from Wisconsin or in the warmer months take a ferry.
I actually kind of think the UP should have been part of Wisconsin because in some-ways it is more connected to us. I am sure Michigan folks would beg to differ.
Pictured Rock National Lake Shore.
There are more moose than people in a lot of these parts. The folks around here have two mailboxes....
one way up high for winter and a regular height for summer. They do get a lot of lake effect snow.
At the very tip of Whitefish point is the shipwreck museum. Famously known as the area where the Edmond Fitzgerald and numerous other vessels went down. Just knowing that gave me the chills. There is something about the water here and it's a definite phenomena although I can't remember exactly what they called it.
There are loads and loads of waterfalls along the UP. The biggest and most famous is Tahquammeon Falls which is the color of a root-beer float.
My next favorite spot is just a wee bit south. Head on down and take a Ferry to Mackinac Island.
Possibly one of the most beautiful places in all of North America.
There are no motor vehicles allowed on the Island. But take a horse ride, rent a bike or just cruise around on your own hoofer's!
Well that's about it for my little tour today. I have spring on the brain so very bad but Mother Nature is not cooperating around here.
So I have to invent my own!
Happy Week-end to all of you!
I am joining my friend Laurie @ Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie for Favorite Things Saturday. Go give Laurie a visit, you will just love her blog and sense of humor!
