    Here is a couple of picture of my home town taken today from the top of Marquette mountain.

    Thanks for the photos Bill, the UP of Michigan is a gorgeous place. As a troll I love to get up there every chance I get!

    Bill, Willow has never seen the UP in all her glory. I keep telling her it's Gods country and needs to be on the "must do list."

    You can almost see my parents house from there. Trees are in the way. Just to the right of the large smokestack. Marquette Drive. I was raised there and moved to Green Bay after College.

    In Michigan north equals beauty and you can't get much farther north in Mi than that. I'm moving to Ocqueoc soon away from this Saginaw Bay suburbia. Love the pics! Bill in Linwood MI

    We are planning a trip to do some off-roading. Hopefully next weekend. We were looking at Lake county but your picture may have changed our mind.

    Nice view.

    Great pix. I spent two super winters there 75-76. Some awful tough runs home from the bars on the snowmobile. Your first blizzard is a little late isn't it?

    Either you have little mountains there, or that is one BIG smokestack. It looks like it is almost as tall as the mountain.

    Our mountains are not as big as some small hills in other parts of the country. :)

    A friend of mine used to vacation with some friends in Charlevoix.

    He would always send me a beautiful postcard.

    He would start it out...Still looking for Woody Hayes ghost. Evidently Woody had affection for the Upper Pen., although if asked he would probably have denied it.




    Regards....Gerald
