Easy drive to the UP and Leroy and Diane Jacobsen's beautiful but simple home in Munising MI. located on a creek which leads to a trail to a water fall which can be accessed easily within a 10 minute walk from their front door called Memorial Falls. A drive or bike ride into town is also an easy 10 to 15 minutes down hill, of course gotta up on the way back but not a hard effort at all, and views of lake Superior makes it easier. The Falling Rock coffee shop is a delight and the town boasts many neat restaurants, bars, 2 hardware stores, grocery, drug and any other thing you'd want but what I like; NO SPRAWL. On Tuesday we went to a farmers market and concert in the municipal park featuring a national slide guitar champion, Kraig Kenning. Wednesday we drove over to Marquette to visit friends from Fl. Chuck and Linda and get in a bike ride with them. Thursday we moved the camper from the campground to Diane and Leroy's and did some hiking around Munising. Friday was spent hiking and biking in Seney National Wildlife Refuge where we saw Loons, and Trumpeter Swans. Today was another trip to Marquette, where on the way we stopped by Lakenland a sculpture garden of extraordinary proportions. Really something not to be missed. A hike at Sugarloaf Mountain, a rocky climb to stunning views of Gitchi Gumee, or Lake Superior. Rain halted any other excursions this day.
