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.

The crater is spectacular, and I also managed managed to capture informal portraits of the ranger and a pretty blond hiker.  The ranger gave her safety talk to the tune of Gilligan’s Island.  Three images are obviously not from the crater.  The black and white was taken near the main power station, the stitched pano is a small village tucked away on West Maui, and the the sunset was in Kihei.

In Cabo, the sun is brighter, tacos taste better, tequila is stronger and skirts are shorter.
