Well here's an update to our trip. We have completed Minnesota and Wisconsin and are now into Michigan. At the moment I am sitting in Munising, UP MI. Lily and I will head over to Pictured Rocks National Seashore shortly.
In a nut shell here's where we went:
Pipestone - quarry where they find stone for Peacepipes
Factory - say HI and buy things
Itasca SP - headwaters of the Mississippi
International Falls - just 'cause
Hibbing - Hull/Rust open pit mine largest of its kind
Ely - Bear & Wolf Preserves
Grand Marais - a great fiberglass gathering
Hinkley - Native American Pow Wow
Preston/Harmony - the Amish
Baraboo - too many road closures and detours but did see Delton Lake, the one that drained during the storms.
Green Bay area - the Packers Hall of Fame
Door County - mass of humanity over 4th of July
Lac du Flambeau - Ojibwa village
Bayfield - a great campground "Dalrympel Muni" site 23 right on the water.
UP MICHIGAN -
Copper Harbor - nice area and ran into one the ladies from the GM gathering
Munising - just got here will tour Pictured Rocks National Seashore as soon as I post this.
I haven't down loaded very many pictures so none to send at the moment other than Lily and I at the Ojibwa village.
