You won't likely find GRITS anywhere in Michgan's U.P..... (even at restaurants).....Yoopers like PASTIES: http://www.calimerette.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/2990-pasties.jpg

Beautiful place. However the mosquitoes all but destroyed our visit in early summer. Couldn’t be out of the coach to BBQ or for a campfire. With the help of a Deet shower we hiked to the falls.

We normally avoid mid May to mid July because of those critters.  About mid July things start drying out and the mosquito population greatly decreases.  We always carry mosquito head nets with use and have two sets of exterior clothing treated with Sawyer permethrin (a treatment lasts several months).  Instead of deet we use Sawyer Picaridin lotion on exposed skin.  Its effectiveness is longer lasting than deep.  These are our personal preferences and work for us.  Happy travels.

Have been there a few times in the Summer...  One of the most beautiful places I've been.

As much as I like it here in South Carolina in the winter.

Michigan in winter is one BEAUTIFUL state... I mean many Times I've hiked through a Christmas Card grade landscape...   (Some of those days you'd now want to be driving,. but back then I went out the door with two on the floor in my Conner's Foot Mobile (Modified line from a song. the original was Addias but I'd more likely be wearing US made Conner's tennis shoes)

Actually I wore boots over leather.

Think they were on the  menu but they are not to me liking.  I know some people love them.
