For our first wedding anniversary (Yay!) Kai and I took a trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (Kai’s part of the vacation) and to Mackinac Island (my part of the vacation). During our time at Pictured Rocks we hiked somewhere around fifteen miles and spent a lot of time visiting waterfalls and admiring Lake Superior. While in Mackinac, we stayed at the gorgeous Grand Hotel, rode bicycles around the island, and shopped. Quite a contrast!
Our second day at Pictured Rocks we went on a twelve mile hike that looped through the forest and followed along Lake Superior. It sounded like a great idea until I realized how long twelve miles actually is! If you know me or have read our “Bio” section on our website you know that I’m a fast walker. Kai kept telling me to pace myself but of course I didn’t listen and at about eight miles I was ready to be carried back to the car. I’ve never been so sore in my entire life! Riding bicycles in Mackinac was such a relief as opposed to walking!
Kai took a ton of landscape shots at Pictured Rocks. It’s amazing how different the nature becomes after crossing over the Mackinac Bridge. I had never been in the Upper Peninsula before and it is truly beautiful.
He are several shots Kai recently completed from our trip!
