On Waterfalls and Pictured Rocks

One of the unexpected adventures of our Upper Peninsula trip was a night's stay in Munising, MI, which was both a cultural experience and a treat. What could be mistaking for a seaside town, Munising was an odd yet beautiful place. We knew we were in the UP when we had dinner at the Dog Patch and our waitress asked us "How you's" were doing. But, the people were nice, the food was ok and the land was incredibly beautiful. Thanks to some useful tourist brochures, we found out there were quite a few waterfalls to be visited as well as the somewhat famous pictured rocks.

I was particularly amused at the attention Scott's Mini Cooper received in the UP. No less than three times, we would exit a restaurant or a sight seeing opportunity to find some 50 something staring the car down. My favorite gentleman said "That will be a nice car, when it grows up." He of course was driving a truck.

The water at the Pictured Rocks was pretty spectacular. A light green like I had seen in Lake Michigan Before. A not so far away place that I would certainly revisit.
