Once we started getting into Northern Michigan, I was surprised to see how much the area and terrain reminded me of Maine. We saw many Aspen and Fir trees that are common to higher elevations or to a colder climate. In fact, we observed just a hint of color in a few of the aspen's. I'm sure this area is quite scenic in the fall when all the leaves are turning.
We plan to pull out in the morning and make the final 100 miles to Mackinaw City and will be staying at the Tee Pee Campground on the shore of Lake Huron. We're staying there for five days and can't wait to explore the area.
