Some Favorite Michigan Memories

About this time of year I seem to notice several articles, advertisements, and flyers asking for people to send in some of their memorable vacation photos or favorite Michigan spots. I think this is when companies must start thinking about planning the photos for their next year's business calendars. I've seen inquiries posted for banks, area chambers of commerce, tourism companies, etc. I don't know that I have any to send in, but it did get me thinking about what some of MY favorite photos would be. I found a few of mine and some that my children took.

Let's start with the baby bunny in my own backyard. He seems to like the shade of the tall grass (as well as sitting under my black-eyed susans). As long as he's happy, right?

My son took this photo of Miner's Castle while in Michigan's Upper Peninsula attending a friend's wedding.

A beautiful shot of a lighthouse off the shore of Mackinaw Island.

Bike riding around Mackinaw Island, my daughter snapped a photo of Picture Rock. We did hike up to the top, but decided the view was better from the bottom!

We moved on the next day to downtown Petoskey, MI. So peaceful!!!

This friendly guy was just keeping himself cool on a hot afternoon at the Polar Bear exhibit at the Detroit Zoo. I think he had the right idea!

What are some of the favorite places you've been? Even if they weren't in Michigan I'd love to hear about them.


  1. My favorite places in Michigan are Kirk Park on Lake Michigan and Sand Point/Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore near Munising. Don't have a favorite place in Indiana.

  2. My favorite places in Michigan are Mackinac Island, Downtown Rochester, Downtown Plymouth, Traverse City, and home.
