Michigan Fun

The End of the Earth

The End of the Earth

I toured Michigan for two weeks in August of 2012. A few days were spent in Dearborn.  There is one photo from the Henry Ford Museum of a steam engine. From Dearborn I motored North to Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Recreational Area. The dunes are spectacular and some are steep. In one place climbers descend about 1,000 feet (300 M) to the lake with no way to return but to climb back up. There is a fee for rescue. The view of Lake Michigan from that spot demonstrates its vastness. It looks more like an ocean than a lake. Traverse city sits on a narrow bay and is a favorite destination of young families living in the Midwest. Next I went to Mackinac Island where horses substitute for cars. The trip ended in Ann Arbor where I photographed the graffiti alley.

        • This winter was cold for us. There were at least a few nights when it got to 0C. Typical winter high temperatures are 15 to 20 and no hard freeze. It snows about once in 10 years and it is gone in a few hours. The summers are torrid, 37C and humid. Heat factors make it feel like it is 45C.

  6. Wife and I were talking about Michigan last night. I kinda miss it but not enough to go back to the climate. The lakes are fresh water oceans really… Glaciers do good work!

    • John, it is hard to absorb the vastness of the Great Lakes.
