Baraga to Wolverine to Davison, MI

Yesterday we traveled from Baraga to Wolverine, MI. We passed through Christmas, MI, near Munising, and saw Santa standing along side the road. We had to say "bye-bye" to Lake Superior and Grand Island as we passed through Munising. We camped on the Sturgeon River at the Sturgeon River Campground. Years ago, a Detroit TV weatherman, Sonny Elliot, when giving his report, would take a piece of the Upper Peninsula weather map and point to "Engadingadingadine" and point to a spot on the peninsula. We think of this each time we pass through this really small town, just north of Lake Michigan near Manistique. We were going to stop at St. Ignace for the night but, instead went on 40 more miles or so to Wolverine. We stayed at The Sturgeon River Campground, a PA park located right on the Sturgeon River. This is located near the largest Elk herd east of the Mississippi. We didn't see any elk this trip but have in the past. Beautiful and peaceful around here. The river is hypnotic. Today we made it to our home park, Lakeshore Campground in Davison, MI. We will unload the rig tomorrow and Thursday too, if the extra day is needed. Probably stay until Thursday anyway. The next planned trip will be to the MOC Fall Rally in Goshen, IN in late September. Maybe go to Nashville, IN, aka Little Nashville, with its Little Opry, when in the area. We hope to have a short jaunt or so between now and then but we'll see.
