Up North | Michigan / by Scott Meivogel

6 days without a real agenda, just a general idea of where our explorations will take us. We had a amazing little cottage near Glen Lake for the initial 3 days, which allowed us to explore the Leelanau Peninsula and its vast open spaces, fishing towns, clear shorelines, wineries and breweries. Star gazing in Northern MI is plentiful, but it seems to always be magical near Glen Lake. The Milky Way and its numerous shooting stars, comets, and roaming satellites makes for a great night.

The second half of the trip was spent at a waterside campsite on the Tahquamenon River, just a short drive from the norther tip of the United States. The Great Green North is something that everyone should experience, as it's as close as you'll get to the wildness of Maine, at least here in the midwest. It's why we moved here and it's why we'll go back every year.
