Christmas, MI

After a 1000 mile trip from Rapid City, SD, to Christmas, MI, I arrived where the WINs were parked at a National Forest Campground called, Bay Furnace. Although they had arrived several days before, there was still plenty for me to do over the next week. Monday we went kayaking on the AuTrain River. It was really a slow moving wide creek with lots of marsh and plants. Beautiful trip. Here we are getting ready to put in.

And here we are on the water


Later that eveing we went on a cruise to Pictured Rocks National Seashore. The cruise lasted around 2 hours and we saw lots. But here is a picture of us on the top in the open air.


But a few decided they would rather stay inside downstairs instead.


This is Miners Rock, also called Castle Rock.

And below is why they call it Picture Rocks. Lots of different colors on the rocks and many people say they see pictures.

There were also caves and arches along the shoreline as well.

This is Chapel Beach. Some people were even silly enough to get in the frigid water. We heard the water here on Lake Superior is only about 58 degrees.

This is the largest of the many waterfalls we saw along the way. This one is Splash Falls.

But on the way home someone started feeding the gulls. Watching the gulls swoop in and catch the food midair was more entertaining than the rocks. They really seemed to like jalapeno cheezits
