Michigan's Upper Peninsula

I was fortunate to be able to take a driving trip to the glorious U.P. a couple of summers ago. 
I have always wanted to visit the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island so I jumped at the chance.
(Somewhere In Time is one of my favorite movies) 
This trip also allowed me to reach my goal of seeing all five Great Lakes.

Here are a few of my favorite shots (out of the hundreds I took)...

Yeah, I love this place.
