Every other or summer or so, I make an effort to get back to my home state to go on a walkabout. I go long into the woods on the North Country Trail or into the Porcupine Mountains.
Why? This is why.

And here’s some photos I took last summer on my last walkabout. FYI — The best time to go to Upper Michigan is in September after Labor Day, after the tourists have gone, and the bugs have settled down.

Ghost town of Fayette MI. It has a safe harbor, so you often see pleasure craft who have taken shelter from a Lake Michigan storm
