Okay, okay, we give up.
We’re still Yoopers.
Madeline’s list of places not to miss, and Katie’s continuing love song for the UP….roused our curiosity sufficiently, and we changed course.
First thing we did was buy more fuel, because it looks like we’re going to add 450 miles around the UP!
Second thing we did was buy a bunch of Yooper food: pasties. Got some fresh and hot, and some fresh and not yet cooked so we can have them hot tomorrow (and the next day…they’re real good!).
Drove through the great little port town of St Ignace, admired its curbside flowers and lighthouse, then took off cross-country to Tahquamenon Falls.
Along the way we encountered our first patches of trees beginning to change into their Fall colors. We spotted our first stretch of Lake Superior, but the access to shoot was challenging and the sky was dull (for only that moment in time!). We’ll do it justice tomorrow.
We’re in the state park near the lower falls. They’re cool, and we’ll get some nice shots tomorrow. The upper falls are bigger and down the road a few miles. Hold onto your hats, they’re the third largest falls by volume east of the Mississippi!
