Day 19: Deja vu... Central Lake, MI

Total Miles - 185.9

We decided this morning that some of the great spots in UP that we would have enjoyed seeing included a lot of hiking to reach them so we opted to do a little deja vu today and head to Central Lake, Michigan. Central Lake is a place where we spent 4 great Father's Day and a lot of great shooting with friends at the Second Chance Competition. Unfortunately we are about a month early to join them this year so... here we are, having a cigar by the lake... Oh poor us!

Day 18: Truly a road less traveled

Total Miles – 116

Sorry this is a day late but we have had NO SERVICE where we landed and a good portion of the day so we are posting this as soon as we hit civilization.

Day 17: The Upper Peninsula... WOW

Total Miles today: 144.5

We stayed at Ironwood at a little park owned by the town call Curry Park. Simple, clean and easy to get to. Took our time heading out so a slow start.

Day 16: Lake Superior in all it's glory!

Total Miles - 162.4

We left Cloquet, Minnesota to take another road less traveled and do a little exploration around Lake Superior. We headed up towards Red Cliff, Wisconsin on a Route 13 South (which incidentally actually went North - East - and eventually South). We missed our turns a couple of times but finally landed on the right road. We went across the Richard I. Bong Bridge into Wisconsin (please understand these pictures are for your viewing pleasure only and taken through a dirty dash window). ONCE again no sign so: WELCOME TO WISCONSIN!

Day 15: 2 weeks on the road

Total Miles = 143 (approximate)

Two weeks ago today we left on this journey. So far we are hanging in there and haven't killed each other yet. We left Bemidji headed towards Duluth but decided to stop in a KOA campground just before we reached it. Sorry no Walmart tonite ;-)

Total Miles: 200.9
We started the day at Devil's Lake, North Dakota (the picture represents a small percentage of how BIG Devil's Lake is and that spec is actually a boat out there fishing). The other picture is another portion of Devil's Lake and some of it's overflow. OH what New Mexico would do with all that water right now.

Day 13: North Dakota ... Smooth Sailing

Total Miles = 254

We had a very quiet night at Walmart in Williston, ND (see Facebook for pics) and headed out after a good breakfast. Our goal was to reach Devil's Lake and we did. Along the way we took our time and made a couple of detours to take some great photos. Somewhere on the side of the highway in ND we saw an old truck turned into art... Hamburger and french fries to be precise. It was quite a ways off but managed to at least get a shot of it for you.
