Where I stayed
What a drive from Bayfield, WI to here. We stayed on Highway 2 the entire time and traveled alongside the Southern shore of Lake Superior and over the Northern Shore of Lake Michigan. The drive, itself, is mostly two lanes with some four-lane intervals and passing lanes. The landscape reminds me so much of the drive from my hometown of Baudette, MN along the Rainy River to International Falls, but with many shoreline resorts and big old farmhouses and barns. The frost-kissed tips of the deciduous trees are just barely turning red, orange and yellow. It's simply gorgeous! We traversed the entire upper peninsula, West to East and back in and out of Wisconsin in between.
The surprise of the drive, and the biggest treat of the day, came right at the 'right time'
If this highway ends up being the new road between the Levasseur family back home and us, we have found a good thing. Maybe even mom and dad would meet us somewhere on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Simply devine.
Tomorrow, sunrise over Lake Michigan and Mackinaw Island, destination: drive to Niagara Falls, Canada. Oh yeah! We talked to Canyon today. He took his first college test. Physics. He said it's definitely his toughest subject, but he felt good about the test. He's figured out Salt Lake City's TRAX system (lightrail transit) and he sounds fantastic.
