House cleaned, laundry done, groceries bought, grass mowed, flowers watered. Pretty much back to the normal day to day life.
I have to say though we sure did enjoy the trip and seeing some of the beauty our State of Mich has to offer. The sunsets off Lake Superior were amazing. Our own Lake Michigan has great sunsets as well but this one seemed exceptional for some reason.
Porcupine Mountains was established to preserve the Midwest's largest stand of old-growth hardwood-hemlock forest. You'll find striking geologic formations, scenic overlooks, wildlife,waterfalls and alot of human history. Did you know that the Lake of the Clouds was not always called that, its original name was Carp lake but there have never been any Carp found in the lake so the name was changed to Lake of the Clouds, which seems more fitting. It is in the clouds and stunning.
We climbed this tower to see the overlook of the forest below, I love the high places, but the climb isn't always so fun in 80 degree weather.
We dropped down into Wisconsin to marvel at the rolling hills and farms that show the rich heritage of the "Dairy" state.
I kept saying all the farms looked so neat, with picturesque barns, fresh looking homes, always with flowers in the yards, and appeared to be well organized with no clutter of old junk cars or machinery sitting around.
The farmers seem to have an unusual way of planting
their crops too. It makes looking at the fields very
pleasurable. As you see in this picture they alternate
corn and soy beans, to make a maze of sorts.
Just look at the healthy field of soybeans, everything looked so green and vibrant.
Of course all of this was added bonus the real reason we went to Wisconsin was to visit the House on the Rocks., not just to look at farms.
go to Wis. It was build by a man named Alex Jordan and he was either crazy or just a person whose imagination took flight. Its a one-of-a- kind adventure and treasure trove of some of the world's most unique architecture and eclectic collections filled with the exotic, the whimsical, and the unexpected. The infinity room was amazing and scary. It extends 218 feet into space, 156 feet above the valley floor so you are looking down on the tops of the trees. And it moves when alot of people are walking out onto it.
