Sunrise-orange across the Grand Marais breakwater and Lake Superior.
Fall color along US2, southern side of the peninsula, out from under the cloud bank.
Lake Michigan at Brevort, still in the Upper Peninsula. Never come down to the lake here before.
Lake Michigan at Cross Village, in the northern Lower Peninsula. More wind than the north shore at Brevet.
Tunnel of Trees, as the state highway going south of Cross Village is known. The right-of-way is narrower than standard, not two lanes wide, and thus no center line. We followed about ten fancy, late-model Corvettes who were traveling together. We left the park at Cross Village right behind them, and followed them into Harbor Springs. [If you’re looking at a map, this’ll make sense.] We got a chance to analyze tight GM cornering from the rear.
One more shot of the fall color in the northwestern Lower Peninsula, greener than in the UP.
That visually sums the prettiest pretties of the day.
