Lake Michigamme photos-UP of Michigan
I took a drive to Marquette, Michigan, the largest town in my area (two hour drive, one way to get to a place with 25,000 people). Along the way one passes a very pretty small lake, Lake Michigamme. Michigan has two parts to it: The Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula (called the UP). Natives of the UP and, I suppose, adoptees like me are called Yoopers. There is friendly teasing between the two parts. Yoopers call those in the lower Peninsula "Trolls" because they live under the bridge that links the two regions.
Anyway, two photos.
