Not Off Track

My wife and I spent this weekend visiting my son at Michigan Tech. He has been away at school now for 6 weeks and we had a free weekend so decided to make a quick trip. While I do love rainy days, I would have preferred some sunshine […]

First Vacation (long drive home)

While the air between us was much clearer, the Southern August air was not. Driving through North and South Carolina was sweltering. The cool mountain air of the Smokies had given way to the humid coastal Carolinas. We drove for hours watching the canopy of maple, oak, and […]

First Vacation (enough said)

We argued all the way through the rest of Indiana and Kentucky and into Tennessee before finally getting to our campground…late and tired and in the dark…deciding that we should just agree to disagree and try to get some sleep. Neither of us slept very much…there are different […]

First Vacation (the set-up)

You never know quite where an unfamiliar road is going to take you. A mountain top or down into the valley or maybe a little of both are always on the horizon when charting new territory. Our first vacation taught us this lesson. We had been married for […]

Glimmers Of Heaven

There could not be a more perfect place to watch the sun set on a cool evening with a hot cup of coffee in one hand and the other laced through the fingers of the love of your life. There we sat staring at the sun setting on […]

Around The Corner

I’ve done a lot of driving for two very simple reasons: I hate boats and I hate planes. They both occupy that place in my psyche ruled by fear and fueled by a lack of control. Who really knows what lurks in the deep dark depths of unseen […]

Mackinac Island

This trip was long overdue. I grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula almost as far north as you can get and now live in the middle of the Lower Peninsula. I have crossed the Mackinac Bridge more times than I can count and always looked over the railing […]

Silver Mountain

There were parts of the way down that you had to face the rocks as you went down being sure to place your feet in the right places and hold on to the crevices with your hands as you made your way down. There is also a quite impressive sheer cliff wall on one side of the mountain that is often used by climbing clubs for rappelling. I have never been quite that adventurous, though, and the way I usually took down was not really that dangerous since there were plenty of foot falls and hand holds, and while steep it is not like you’re hanging over the edge of a great chasm. The whole descent takes about twenty minutes, maybe a little more if you’re enjoying the view on the way down. I have always preferred the valley floor to the mountain top anyway, and climbing down this particular mountain was always much more fun than taking the stairs to the top or enjoying the view once there. Silver Mountain is surrounded by miles and miles of maple forests reaching as high as they can with their branches upraised creating a cathedral canopy
