I travel the rocky shores of Lake Superior and the streets of Detroit taking pictures and researching travel guides.

U.P. roadside attractions
The Fourth of July marks the start of the Michigan travel season for many families with children, and roadside attractions are a way to break the drive. The U.P. is full of them. A stop for a pasty is a break from fast food. And then there's the town of Christmas just west of M-28. Santa is there year round. A personal favorite is the Yooper Tourist Trap, below, right, which has displays of quirky items, like the Yooper Internet, which I could never figure out the meaning of. They Mystery Spot on U.S. 2 just west of the bridge has delighted generations of kids.
