One of the nice things being in the northern states is the opportunity to look for black bear and moose. I really want to see them in the wild. So all through upper Michigan and our trip up to Ely we searched the ditches and looked deep into the forest as we were whizzing by.
Once we were in Robin's area we got to take a canoe out on to Oxyoke Lake, which is about 2-3 miles from their house. I think this was my favorite part about the trip.
