A great ride in Northern Michigan

What a great day!!

Almost 230 miles up around Northport, down M-22 to Onekama, across to Kaleva and back up to Kalkaska.

M-22 is really a great ride.

You dog, David. You didn't even stop and say hey. Saturday I rode up 31 and 22 and spent the night in Glen Arbor. Came back in gun run mode today. Shame we missed each other.

That is one sweet ride. I did that basic route earlier this summer out of Traverse City.

Re: A great ride in Northern Michigan

What amazed me most about rinding M-22 in July, was the over abundance of red cherries on the trees weighing down the limbs in the groves. Spectacular colors, the red and green, against the blue lake. Just one of the many views I'll never forget. Great riding, too!
H-58, M-119 & M-22. The best riding this year, for sure.

Thanks for the trigger,
Jer

I have a week's vacation coming up and am hoping to get down there again during the week of October 10. There is another fella from Elk Rapids area on here that I was hoping to meet up with too. Can't remember his name right now.
I also have friends in Kalkaska and family in TC.

That is one of my favored rides. When my parents retired they moved to a place they had on bear creek just off 13 mile rd. They had Bear Lake mail & a Kaleva phone. They would get drinking water from one of the artesian wells over off M22. There is a artesian well in Pierport just off Lake Michigan & one in Onekama on the road going out to Portage point.

This brings back a lot of memories for me. We use to go to Pierport to swim in lake Michigan, & ECT..

Did you stop at the bottle house in Kaleva ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_J....n_Bottle_House
