This year we started out at her place (on the underside of the thumb of Michigan) and drove up around the tip of the thumb. We drove along the shores of Lake Huron. The colors weren't all that great... a lot of yellows with a few splashes of red and orange... so I didn't get any pics of the trees.
But here are a few I did take:
That's the route we took (and the "you are here" pointer). We started in Marine City, went up to the tip then down the center of the thumb and back to MC. It was about 200 miles or so overall.
Shelley and me.
Shell and Blake.
A cute little country store we stopped in for ice cream. This was in Grindstone City, MI. Yeah... by the time you say the name, you are through the town! LOL!!
