UP ride!

Well I decided to take the day off today, I headed north after work yesterday and rode up to Munising via US2, M117, and M28. The roads are in really good shape and the traffic was light. Also the air was much cooler in the UP. On the way home I headed across H58. WooHoo That road is awesome and the traffic was light. From there I made my way over to Paradise stopping at the old logging museum just north of Newberry. In Paradise I had to have a pasty for lunch.

From there I took the Curly Lewis road along the shoreline over thru Brimley to Mackinaw trail then headed south.

Traffic was light, weather was great and I always stop at Joann's for fudge when I get near Mackinaw City!! Almost 600 miles.

Tomorrow back to work

Re: UP ride!

David, you really know how to play HOOKEY. Good for you.

I've had the good fortune to ride/drive across the UP a few times and it's always a very scenic time.

Re: UP ride!

Sounds like it was a very nice ride. I'll have to check out the logging museum by Newberry. My Dad use to tell about when he was a kid his family would go up to the UP to visit his Grandparents. They ran a store in a logging camp 22 miles out of Newberry. He said the only way to get out there was by train.

Re: UP ride!

Awesome ride, Dave! I'm sure there's still a huge smile plastered across your face. What, no Scottish eggs at Superior Brewing in Grand Marais? Gotta go back now.

Have fun,
Jer
