Photo Opportunities in the UP

Over the 4th of July, the Hubs and I took a hiking vacation in the Upper Penninsula, Michigan.  The main objective was to capture many images to use as references for my digital paintings. But, we never imagined the beauty we would find.  Not everything about the trip was wonderful--our room in the only hotel in the area had a smell.  There was virtually nowhere to eat and nowhere to shop for food. The heat on one day was almost unbearable when hiking up and down (especially up) the stairs to and from the falls.  But, I think it was all worth it.  Beautiful country.

Here are just a couple of photos (out of hundreds) I took and will use in the future for my paintings. 
Copper Harbor Lighthouse, Lake Superior
This is also Copper Harbor
Manido Falls in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park
Manabezbo Falls also in the Porcupine Mountains
The Hubs at Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains.

More to come!
