If you only knew how much I love where I live, I could write a book! Haha
If you're in OH, start by going directly
to the north west near Lake Michigan - there, you'll find almost mountainous terrain, (where I live) and, of course, Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore, lighthouses, quaint harbor towns, rivers, forests, etc. After enjoying that, head straight up to the Mackinac Bridge, and you'll find yourself in awe as you cross. Be sure to head west
on US-2, and you'll have the tip of Lk. MI to your left. Go north to Lake Superior and try to get to Munising as fast as you can so you can treat yourself to something wonderful - Pictured Rocks Nat'l Lakeshore!!! Once you've recovered from being awestruck by that, (not exaggerating! Been there a zillion times, and the parking lot is peppered with license plates from all over the country!), keep heading west! If you have the time, (if you knew what you'd behold you'd cancel every appt. For the next 2 wks!) go up to the magnificent Keweenaw Peninsula!!!! Copper Harbor! Brockway Mountain! All with panoramic vistas of Lake Superior like never imagined. Your life will be enhanced forever by this experience, and I hope you get to
any of these places someday :)
