The Upper Peninsula in Michigan

Are you thinking about traveling to the beautiful Upper Peninsula this summer? Do you live out of state and you wonder what wonders await you in Michigan?? Well, this Michigander would love to tell you about the first time I went to the U.P. When I was younger my family told me I had visited there, but I did not remember any of it from that time. So.. with that being said I would like to tell you about the time my husband surprised me for our honeymoon and took me to all these beautiful spots in the U.P.  Every single day, we were in a totally different part of the U.P and it truly was the best honeymoon I could have ever hoped for, in a state I had no idea had so many beautiful places.

The first thing we did was get in the car and take the several hour drives to our first destination Mackinaw City. This is a big tourist section, if you love fudge this is one of the best places to get it. Also if you want to try something new or if you have already had one yourself, this is a good spot to get a Pasty.

After you cross over the bridge, I believe you end up right in St. Ignace. There is a place called Castle Rock and a lighthouse that you will want to visit. If you are anything like my husband and me, we are obsessed with lighthouses, they are all so unique. We try to look at everyone everywhere we go, so we have been to quite a few in Michigan.

This is the very bottom to the path you can take to climb castle rock.
This is Ryan and I, right at the top of castle rock. If you have anyone like my hubby who is afraid of heights, do not worry there is a chain fence that you can grab and you do not have to walk all the way to the edge.

Finally, there are so many incredible places to go to when you are in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We have so many secret and hidden spots that are absolutely gorgeous. These next ones are quite a drive and I will just show you pictures, rather than explaining where exactly they are because I am truly very sorry but geography has never been my strong suit.

The Tahquamenon Falls.
Kitch-iti-kipi, this is truly one of my favorite spots to go up north. An experience of a lifetime to see.

Pictured Rocks is another gorgeous site to see. They wrap around quite a bit of the lake and the falls that come off from them were my favorite to see.

This is one of the taller lighthouses that we went up in.

If you or your family like animals. This is Oswald’s, the picture below is the deer ranch.

We do not have any kids, well..(no human kids) our child is our dog, Ruger. Yes, I am a very proud dog mom and love spending time with my dog.  I also enjoy crafting, reading, hunting, being outdoors, spending time with family and writing & singing music. I never knew when I was younger that this is where I would be in life at this very moment.  When I found out I was sick, my life took a turn for the worse for quite a while. It always felt if it wasn't one thing it was another, first, it was head injuries (about 12 concussions or more to be exact), then there were heart problems. I never thought in a million years it would have got as bad as it did, but through it all, I knew that God had it. Did I have my doubts? Of course, I did! Who in their right mind wouldn't? I just knew in my heart and still to this day know, this is exactly where the Lord wants me. With him all things are possible, and I know without him I would not be who I am today. Living the life of these illnesses has not kept me from pursuing and reaching my full potential. I was able to graduate with my Bachelors Degree in Human Resource Management, and health services administration. I worked incredibly hard at school, my strength and endurance pushed me to be the best I could be. And now here I am starting this beautiful blog of mine and pursuing another goal in life and helping others reach theirs in every way that I can possibly can!
