10 Photos in This Gallery
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.
