Glennie, in the Huron Nat'l forest is what I consider up north. Only been above the bridge a handfull of times, and Tequamenon falls is pretty cool

I was just thinking the same thing! Being from GR, I consider Cadillac the exact point where "up north" starts, with Houghton being as far "up north" as I care to go...

I get a kick out of my Lake City hoodie that says "Up North" on it. I have to travel 4 hours to get that far south!!

I consider "Up North" to be more like L'Anse, Houghton, etc. Then again I live in Gladstone, so...

You can't go wrong with just heading north and ending up...where ever. My most common destination is the Manistee river to wet a line.

My wife's parents live on a lake in Hillman, near Alpena. We love going up there in the summer. Also we like to visit Mackinac since it's such a short trip from the lake.

My mom and step-dad have lived all over the state - Ann Arbor, Techumseh, Alpena, Rogers City, Newberry, Marquette and now North Branch, so I've been able to visit quite a few different places.

'Up North' for me growing up was always either Marquette or Houghton. Now that I'm going to school in Sault Sainte Marie, there really isn't an 'up north' for me. Up North from here would be crossing the bridge into Canada.

Wife's family has a place in Lewiston. We really enjoy going to the U.P. with our camper. If you have not been to the Porcupine Mountains yet, you are missing out.
