Why Vacation Anywhere Else

A question and a statement. As a lifelong resident of Michigan, Lansing in particular, I have often wondered why going anywhere else for a brief vacation was ever an option.

Michigan’s vast beauty and miles of shoreline, make the perfect spot for any diehard beach goer. That is of course, that you hit that magical week in August, of ideal temperatures. The pictured rock in Munising are always an amateur ¬†photographer’s best subject.

USCG Mackinaw

Michigan’s rich nautical history lends itself to floating museums like the US Coast Guard cutter Mackinaw, that was once an ice breaker on the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum in Whitefish Point, MI, is the home for the 200 lb. brass bell that was recovered from the Edmund Fitzgerald. The ship and it’s 29 crew members were lost in November of 1975, and has remained a huge part of our history.

The grasses of Drummond Island were alive with color last weekend as fall rapidly approaches. Some of the trees have started to make their color change for fall and it won’t be long until all is covered with the white of winter.

Or maybe it’s just a cairn, made by a previous visitor to the cabin we stayed in on Lake Huron. Whatever the reason, I find it difficult to look further than my own back yard for a beautiful summer retreat with loved ones. The UP will always hold a very special place in my heart. I look forward to many more trips to make more memories to share with everyone. – Duran
