A Piece of Heaven

"si quaeris pennsulam amoenam, circumspice"
(If You Seek A Pleasant Peninsula, Look About You)

Welcome to Northern Michigan! If you are planning a vacation here, you will find there are a million things to see and places to explore no matter what season it is. With hundreds of inland lakes and the "Great Lakes" surrounding us, you can enjoy any water sport or any type of fishing that strikes your fancy. No matter where you are in Michigan, you are within 85 miles of one of the great lakes. I hope to share a wide range of information that will help you discover all of the beauty and fun things to do.

I have put together some pictures I have taken of scenery here in Northern Michigan. They are in slideshow form. I do not claim to be a photographer but some of them aren't too bad. Hope you have time to take a look.

Morel Mushrooms

One thing you do not want to miss while visiting Northern Michigan is hunting for the "elusive" morels in the spring. People come from out of state just to look for these tasty mushrooms. You will see many camping in the woods while they are here. It is a big event! And of course there is the mushroom festival in Mesick.I can hardly wait to go out hunting myself!! The picture above is of a gray morel I found in my back yard. I found about 10 of them...mostly under a pine tree. Anyone wanting to display their find can send your photos and any info you would like to share, like where you found them, (just kidding..no one ever tells) to me and I will put up your pics. Here are some great sites if you want more details about Morel Mushrooms....Happy Hunting!!
