Michigan Miscellaneous

I left the fishing derby at Republic, MI and traveled northeast to the Kewadin Casino in Christmas, MI where I had stayed last year and where the Tribe provides RV'rs with free electric hookups in the casino parking lot.  I got there in time to snag the last of about 10 hookups, and then went into the casino to try my luck.

Not much to write home about "casino camping"...but it's free!
I pretty much broke even at that casino, certainly not my usual result but every so often I get up and leave when I'm still ahead.  The weather along the shore of Lake Superior was just ideal and I spent 3 nights there before proceeding east along US 2 where I took the following "miscellaneous" shots that have something or other to do with the Upper Penninsula.

Mmmm....pasties!  A meal in itself, try one if you ever pass through the UP.
US 2 basically follows the northern coast of Lake Michigan until it gets you to the Mackinaw Bridge.  It's kind of like the Pacific Coast Highway in California except you're in Michigan.

Beautiful Lake Michigan from a US 2 scenic turnoff.
The island is part of the Beaver Island Archipelago, not sure which one.
Eventually if you drive far enough along US 2 you get to take in this awesome view:

Big Mac and the way to the Lower Peninsula!
