TRAVEL

Cairngorms National Park Road Trip

Our road trip through the Cairngorms National Park opens in St. Andrews and ends with a selfie in front of the Royal Family’s Scottish home. Sandwiched in the middle we explored Dunnottar and Balvenie Castles and the Elgin Cathedral.  

Quincy Mine Tour in Hancock Michigan

Just north of Hancock, Michigan in the heart of the Keweenaw Peninsula is the Quincy Mine. It’s been closed over 70 years, but tours are available. During our 2017 Michigan Tour, Chuck convinced me it was time to slay my fears and journey nearly one mile into the side of a hill and explore a bit of history.

Chelsea Curling Fest 2018

The Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce’s Curling Fest 2018 (February 16-18, 2018) featured a tournament for both experienced and novice competitors on Saturday and Sunday and learn to curl sessions on Friday.

2017 UP Winter Vacation

Eating large cinnamon buns, snowshoeing in Narnia and drinking beer in an honest to goodness saloon are just a few highlights from our 2017 UP Winter Vacation. Plus we drove 1,300 miles, experienced a white-out on M-41 outside of Marquette and explored an ice cave. 

Canyon Falls Michigan’s Grand Canyon

The Canyon Falls trail along the Sturgeon River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has been dubbed “Michigan’s Grand Canyon.” It is 15 miles south of L’Anse, Michigan on US 41. There is plenty of parking at the roadside park. Blue slashes along the trail mark the North Country Trail.

A Tour of Colonial Michilimackinac

Colonial Michilimackinac is the last exit before Mackinaw Bridge and is packed with history and photo opportunities. It was the first stop on our 2017 Michigan Tour of Places we’ve always said we wanted to checkout or did and can’t remember. I think you could safely call it the 2017 Michigan Middle Age Tour
