It was 90 degrees out, so we didn't feel like getting
very close to each other for these photos!

Could John be telling us why people - on that side call people on this side 'trolls'? - (Because they live under the bridge!) Crossing the Mackinac Bridge going north. - (They pronounce it Mackinaw, by the way.) Two things you gotta eat if you go to - the Upper Peninsula are smoked fish and pasties. - We first stopped at a country store to attack this fish. We sat on the back stoop of the store and devoured the fish - clawing it apart with our fingers! At HOG Island? - Three happy longhair hogs.
In late afternoon we got a campsite near Lake Superior. - John S. plunged in! It was COLD! Bill had a cut on his foot so he couldn't go in. - He really wanted to! So he put his hand in instead. The next morning we headed for Pictured Rocks National Park. One nice thing about vacationing with friends - is we get photos that have us both in them. There's John S., pointing again!
This park spent a LOT of money to make sure we stayed on the trail. No beach here!  The Lake Superior shoreline here was cliffs. Miner's Rock. - It's kind of ugly, actually. Miner's Falls. - Nice! With us along, the two Johns - got some photos taken of the two of them, too.
