Living in hot Georgia and visiting Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, and Tennessee the past several weeks, we looked forward to getting north, and Michigan did not disappoint. With highs in the 70s and lows in 40s, we accomplished what we set out to do…which was to escape the southern heat!
After several days in Mackinaw City, we crossed over the Mackinac Bridge into the Upper Peninsula. We camped in Manistique, MI on the Indian Lake.
Kitch-iti-kipi is Michigan’s largest natural freshwater spring. The name means “big cold water” and is sometimes referred to as The Big Spring. The water was crystal clear. It was simply breathtaking!!
Michigan was the destination of this trip, but we had fun coming home, too. We stopped and had a blast at the D&B’s both in Milwaukee, WI and Nashville, TN. We saw multiple firework displays while driving through Chicago on July 4th.
And, of course, we had to go to Savannah’s Candy Kitchen in Nashville, TN to load up on taffy, pralines, and chocolate covered pretzels!
We made it back home safely from our trip to Michigan and after attending to some matters with the kids’ schooling and going to church (which we’ve missed tremendously), we will be headed back out on the road.
We have a tentative plan of where we are going but having a ton of fun adjusting the route as we go. Until we get there…
