I’m going to go back in time, and share with you our incredible 2 months road trip that took place in the US during summer 2013. This series is about one of the natural wonders of the world, the Great Lakes !
For the ones who have missed the first parts :
So far, the road trip was exceeding all our expectations and we had a lovely time exploring Wisconsin. We left Green Bay to spend a few days in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The peninsula is surrounded by Lake Superior on the North. It was time for us to discovered our second great lake !
We arrived in Marquette under the rain, and we couldn’t denied it, the climate had changed compared to our lovely Wisconsin. It was mid-afternoon, and we wanted to make the most of our day, despite the bad weather. We headed towards Presque Isle Park, and its iconic lighthouse. The wind was really strong and we were happy to have brought our waterproofs with us. There was a brake in the water where you could walk all the way to the end … We didn’t go very far due to the strong wind. There were several coves along the shoreline of the island, and in many you can find agates and other beautiful stones (a lot of people are picking them up). For the last picture, I took them from inside the car, the weather was really really bad. It was time for us to go back to the motel.
The next day, we drove towards Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Multicoloured sandstone cliffs, beaches, sand dunes, waterfalls, inland lakes, forest and wildlife,.. you can find all of that in this national park. The sandstone cliffs have been naturally sculptured into shallow caves and arches by the waves throughout time. That was so pretty, everything was really green and lush. The weather was a bit better than the day before, but quite chilly.
In the evening, we had a stroll in Marquette and had a drink in a local pub where I had my (in)famous “blueberry cider”.
Today, I can still remember the disappointment I felt when they brought the regular cider with blueberries floating on top of it… :D I guess, everyone would have been disappointed…. right ?!
