It’s not just about boobs and wieners.
Made a late afternoon stop at Fayette Historic Townsite outside of Garden, Michigan while on our way home from Pictured Rocks. An interesting place, it’s an abandoned Victorian era iron smelting town that had it’s boom and bust and is now a State historic site and Park. Click the image below to open a photo gallery.

To paraphrase Frank Zappa, I’m not dead, I just smell funny. Part of the reason is that I took one of my nephews on a backpacking trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The weather was kind to us, the bugs were friendly, and the views were tremendous. Without further ado, here’s a 100+ image gallery of photos from the park.

In case you miss the link in the photo caption, here’s a short video from Mosquito Beach.
Still working through the video processing, there may be more of those on the way.
Took a side trip on the way home to the ‘ghost town’ of Fayette, which will be the subject of my next blog post.
