Purely Michigan

Updated: 6 days ago



Can you guess by looking at this sign where we were? If you said Michigan's Upper Peninsula, you're right! :) We were super excited to travel to the Upper Peninsula for the first time as it's always been on my bucket list having been born and raised in Michigan. If you're not from here, it's easy to mangle the pronunciation of the names of some of the cities, many of which harken back to the Native American history and the early French Colonists and settlers. I met a sweet lady from Ohio on a cherry farm who asked me about "Tra-verse" City. Locals pronounce it "Traa-verse City." Tomato, tomatoe, doesn't really matter. This region - and down to Northern Michigan- is lovely in the summer as Lake Superior in the UP and Lake Michigan on the west side of the state feel like the ocean. There are many small charming cities, all with historic old downtowns, to explore along the lakeshores.

At Lake Superior in the UP (Yep, we're now considered Yoopers! lol)

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan's UP is stunning to say the least.

The best way to see the gorgeous colored rock cliffs is by boat. You may have seen on the news recently that a chunk of the cliff fell off into the lake, as it was captured on video by onlookers on one of those tourist boats.


Well, it turns out that it's quite normal and expected for the cliffs to change and break off due to erosion over time.
