Home Sweet Home

So, my vacation has come and gone.  Sorry for being MIA, but work was hectic, then there was reservations to make, and travel plans to confrim, and then, just like that it was all over and done.

Here's a rough outline of the path we took on our trip.

We started in the southern part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and visited Bond Falls, then went to the northern tip of the Keewenaw Peninsula to Copper Harbor, then drove to Munising to see Picture Rock National Park, and finally ended up in Ironwood visiting five water falls along the Black River.  In all, we saw fifteen waterfalls.

I'll share more about our trip in the coming days, but first a little background info:  I went with two girls from work and one of the girl's sisters.  At 31, I was the old lady of the group.  I also did all the driving since we took my car and I'm kind of possessive of it.  We left last Friday morning, and got home around Monday night.  The trip was one of my kind of New Year Resolutions (more like a 2014 bucket list I guess) and basically, I just wanted to see how much nature I could cram into four days.  I've been to the U.P. three other times so I "kind of" know my way around but I discovered even more things I love this trip. 

If you ever get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it, and can't wait to go back.  Here's a little shot of some cute violets that lined the path to one of the falls we visited. I'll be sharing more in the next few days.
