    1. Hello Wandering Dawgs, Thank you for commenting & visiting the site; Our trip to the UP was a joy, even though it was quite a ride from Livonia, where we were staying on our Michigan trip. I had hoped to go to St. Ste Marie and Mackinac, but that plan did not materialize. At a minimum, I insisted we drive to the UP and I’m so happy we did. I would love to return to Michigan and see more coastal areas.
