My Weekend Up North
I spent the weekend in Nothern Michigan (Up North, as we like to call it). I left mid-day on Friday and got home Sunday evening. My base was Mackinaw City but I made it as far west as Harbor Springs and enjoyed
a color tour through the Tunnel of Trees along M119 and down to Rogers City to visit an apple orchard on the way home. I shot over 1000 pictures and of all of them, this is about the only one of me (I nabbed another tourist to snap a shot of me).
For those who don't recognize it -- that's the mighty Mackinaw Bridge behind me. The five mile span that connects Lower Michigan with the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
I've got a few sets of photos - with stories - that I want to share with you over the next several days. There are some spectacular shots of the beatiful autumn colors and some fun pictures of pig races, a goose with an evil eye and even a few food photos (and maybe even an attempt as recreating a recipe or two).
Every time I come home from a weekend of exploring, I'm reminded of just how beautiful Michigan really is. I love that I live in such an amazing place.
