Lakes and Forests in Central Michigan
I made a disparaging remark about Michigan yesterday, but now I want to take it back. I have only ever had the experience of south Michigan, and I wasn't too impressed, to say the least. And Detroit, I just think is downright sad.
But central Michigan makes up for it!
Today I got to explore two National Forests and see a Great Lake and several other lesser lakes.
This is a part of the country I have not yet explored and I'm so glad I finally did.

It's only the fourth time, in the whole six years that I've been doing these trips, that River and I've staying in a place other than Motel 6. In all cases but one it was because there were no Motel 6s anywhere near where I wanted to stop. Such was the case here in Mackinaw City.
So it's an unusual luxury to see things in the room like a hair dryer and shampoo. There's a coffee maker, too. But I think I'll stick to my French Press in the morning.
