Looking through the pictures that I took during my most recent trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and I think this one of the Cut River Bridge is one of the best.

On Our Twenty Third Wedding Anniversary

Each year we try to celebrate our wedding anniversary on vacation to spend time together. This year we traveled to Marquette, Michigan, stayed at the Landmark Inn, took a tour of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Munising, and then on our way back spent an evening at Headlands International Dark Sky Park near Mackinaw City.

Here are pictures that we took during the trip:

I defintely recommend all three venues. Pictured Rocks might be the closest thing I’ve seen to the Grand Canyon east of the Mississippi. The Dark Sky Park is a great place for star gazing, just be sure the moon isn’t too bright and you have clear skies.
