The best upper peninsula I’ve ever seen

3 Jun

I thoroughly enjoy my visits up to the upper peninsula of Michigan.  It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have been in the states.  I just got back last night but wish I could have stayed for much longer.  I flew into Marquette so the majority of my photos are from around Marquette but we did take a road trip to Houghton/Hancock where it is equally as beautiful.

The bridge over the Bayou to the beach.  Even though it’s Spring, the colors are still vibrant like the end of fall.

From Ian and his family’s back yard.  This is the walk down from the house.

Duke dog loves this place, too.

Frida’s flowers, she is quite the gardener and keeps the yard beautiful with flowers!

The back yard… Lake Superior!

I love seeing this guy run free on the beach.  I like this photo too because he is in full gallop down the beach, ears flailing and all.

A storm was about to come through.

What an amazing place to play cards.  I just love looking out these windows.

They live on such an amazing lake.  I have so many photos of Lake Superior but somehow it always looks different.

Here’s the view from Founder’s Landing which is a really neat real estate project that Ian’s dad has invested in and his mom works on.   I will have to dedicate an entire post to Founder’s because I have a ton of photos of the development of this project from the past year or two that I have visited.  Here is a view from one of the upcoming condos.

Low tide.

The sand is so soft and fine on Lake Superior, I love walking barefoot in it.

I have MANY more photos to come but I’m exhausted, will catch up over the weekend :)!

Upcoming trip!

23 May

I’m very excited for my upcoming trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  It’s such a beautiful place and I enjoy every visit I have there!  I have had the chance to visit during every season and I can say it’s just as beautiful in each season.  One of my favorite seasons to see the UP in though is fall.  This past fall I had so much fun shooting photos all around Marquette with Ian.  Ian and his family are always so nice to have me and show me around.  I am very antsy for my next visit this upcoming weekend!  Here are some photos from this past fall in Marquette, MI.

Ian’s family lives right on Lake Superior so Ian and I walked out on the jetty by the harbor.  It’s a ways out to make it to the end but it’s so beautiful.

The colors are beyond beautiful in Fall.  Ian’s dad sails on this lake, although this isn’t him out there, he often goes out with some of his friends for sail boat races which are so fun to watch.

We like to do a hike to Hogsback which is one of the highest views around and you can see all of the amazing fall colors from the top.

I love the amazing skies in Michigan.  They have some of the most beautiful sunsets and beautiful skies when there is a storm brewing.  This day was one of the most phenomenal days for lighting but I don’t have any photos really from this day.  The next two are part of the only that I have.

Beautiful fall colors with the only beam of sun coming through.

Double rainbow.

This is Ian’s back yard.  You walk over a bayou and reach the softest sand at the edges of Lake Superior.  Such a clean and wonderful beach, it makes the most incredible back yard.

I just love this photo of Duke in the beach grass.

I absolutely can’t wait for my trip and I will have many more photos to share after my trip =)  It’s worth traveling to if you’re looking for a gorgeous outdoor vacation, I know I love visiting!
