We spent 2 weeks traveling around Lake Michigan's shoreline in June and July this year. We decided on this trip to significantly reduce miles to lower our fuel cost, compared to our cross-country trips from the Chicago area. We never did this before, so it was a new experience for us. We found MI state parks to be our favorite places to camp at, though we spent most of our daytime elsewhere. We enjoyed light houses, golf, sight-seeing shorelines, and quiant shore-side towns. We spent a little time in Traverse City during the Independance Day weekend for their Cherry Festival. It was a much slower paced trip than we are accustom to which was also nice. We did jump around in the Upper Penninsula to Lake Superior shores (light houses, Sault Ste Marie locks, Tahquamenon Falls ) We finished up at Pictured Rock National Lake Shore, then spent the last day from there heading back home to the Chicago area, via Wisconsin.
We pulled the Jeep on this trip and was very happy we did. I think we put more miles on the Jeep than on the PC, and the Jeep's 4x4 capability came in handy one day in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore.
I stumbled on this "Adventure Anywhere" picture opportunity in the rest area just north of Mackinac Bridge. Taking the Jeep during the day, there were very few opportunities for pics of the PC with scenery. One of these days, I'll have to update my Flickr site to post trip pics.
