Michigan and Road Trip Wrap-up

Michigan - What a beautiful state!  A few sites and visits along the way.

Bond Falls

In 2011 we met RV'ers Joe & Opal in FL.  We've seen them several times in different states and they are from MI and spend their summers in Ishpeming.  We had a great lunch with them after hitting the MI high point.  Thanks for the visit!

Soo Locks, Sault Ste. Marie

Lake Michigan

In 2012 we met Jake Acton on a mountain in Washington and we've enjoyed keeping in touch and catching up in FL and AZ as well.  He's from Michigan and his parents still live here so we had a great time finally meeting Jim & Laura and getting the feel of the great little town of Ludington.
