Hoping to get caught up on things this weekend. I have lots of summer projects to check off the list and rooms to paint! In the meantime, take a peek at some vacation photos. The weather was perfect-- we hiked, went off-roading, saw waterfalls, ate fudge, took some boat rides and relaxed. If you have never been to the U.P. in Michigan, I highly suggest going and checking out the Pictured Rocks. It was beautiful!
|Mackinac Bridge- the only way to get to the U.P. from Michigan|
|Pit stop in the Whitefish Bay|
|Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum -- that is the actual bell that|
they recovered from the Edmund Fitzgerald
|Greg being 'creative' and trying to get a picture of the boat smashing into my head|
|Rock searching, which I found out the last day I wasn't supposed to do.. whoops!|
|No one was on the roads in the U.P....|
First day of exploring: lots of waterfalls and views
|Caste Rock in the distance and Lake Superior|
|Castle Rock up close|
|This waterfall was huge.. we were getting misted|
|We had a treacherous hike to this waterfall|
|..so we decided to picnic right in front of it|

Pictured Rocks Sunset Cruise:
|It was 60 degrees out, Greg insisted on sitting on the top deck. It was FREEZING!|
|The overlook we were on earlier by Castle Rock|
|Caves of All Colors|
|Look closely at the pine tree on the top of the rock.. |
its roots bridge the gap and it gets its nutrients from the rock next to it. It was crazy!
That was just our first two days. I took hundreds of pictures and will share more tomorrow!
