Michigan's Uppers Picture Thread

16 posts in this topic

So there may or may not be another topic like this floating around, if so, my apologies, feel free to delete this post, but I was in the G.R. thread, browsing the picture of the day thread and remembered all the pictures of Marquette, Mackinac, and Lake Superior I had, as well as scenery, etc.

Anyways, here are a few pictures from last year's (and a few from the year before that) vacation...

(Sorry in advance if a few of these pictures are huge...I'm not the best at this type of thing.)

I believe that a few delicious pasties were consumed here.

Cool pics. Yeah there is another UP thread floating around, also a few threads for different cities in the UP. Oh well, though.

Awesome pictures!

There's been the long promised Houghton-Hancock-Calumet thread, but like an idiot, I lost those photos.

The UP is filled with so much rich history, and beautiful scenery. It feels like a whole other world up there, and that's a really good thing.

It does feel so different. A lot more rugged.

that's what i love about michigan...

i feel we've so much variety;

open fields, trees, rolling hills, cities, suburbia.

i'd be content living here forever, which is kind of a big thing to say when you're a teenager that loves to travel.

really, my heart will always be in michigan.

I always laugh at the hamlet of Germfask. What a crazy name!

Even so it does make for an entertaining diversion.

Short story: a waste of time.

It's supposed to be some vortex where gravity behaves strangely, but really it's just a fun house with crooked floors to give you the feeling that the gravity there is all screwy.

disconsolate: Great photos! This makes me miss the UP -- I used to spend my summers up there (outside Newberry) as a child but haven't been in three or four years now.

i remember the mystery spot.

when i was about 6 or 7 i wanted to go something terrible, but my mom wasn't willing to cough up admission for me along with my two older step-sisters.

i was jealous for weeks after because i was just so curious.

other than that, thanks! my parents have been making it something of a tradition lately to visit the u.p. on holidays.

we've been renting out a few cabins and had some of our extended family bunk with us to cut back on costs.

so far, i've really enjoyed my time up there, besides the fact i can't wish friends back in grand rapids a merry christmas or happy new year thanks to crap reception.

it's definitely a lovely place though. i can't wait to do a bit of exploring in the next few years.

also, i've been thinking of listening to sufjan steven's 'michigan' album on the way up there.

some of the songs seem as though they'd fit perfectly.
