Let's see some pictures of Michigan. As Michigander I know that we live in one of the most beautiful states in the nation. Let's see your pics.

Looks like it'd be good for a Fall color tour........

I know that there are plenty of 4-wheeler/snowmobile trails that are wide enough to fit a vehicle and have great scenery.

I will have some new photos up soon. I went to the lake today with my cameras and the wind and waves were incredible.

I second that statement. I'm up in the Ludington area and they were rolling pretty good up here yesterday. Had a good time getting some shots of the waves myself... right up to the moment a 70+ MPH gust pulled the tripod out of the sand and sent it and my camera on "Mr Wigglies Wild Ride" down the dune. Thus ended my 1st DSLR :( RIP after a nice 2 years and 17000 photos.

Here are a couple of the last time out with it.

Nice looking shots bydand. I can`t believe someone else lost a camera. My trusty old SLR that I`ve had for 30 years ( I still shoot a little film from time to time ) took a serious dive too. The tripod took a heavy gust and went over backwards . I was on the pier at the time and it hit square on the concrete. I think she is D.O.A . It feels almost like losing an old friend. I have other cameras but they just aren`t the same.

Yes it is like losing an old friend. I lost a Minolta SLR to a canoeing accident years ago (they don't swim so well when given the chance.) It was the first auto focus SLR I owned, but not the last. I still have the replacement I bought 25 years ago (the other one was only 6 months old) and I think I would cry if the replacement one ever dies. Others have come and gone over the years but that one just keeps turning out very nice photos. This latest one though really bites, I have been bitten by the DSLR bug bad now. No processing costs, no waiting, no wondering if the series you just took were perfect or not and by the time you find out the are not, you can't reshoot it. I love my digital.

I've messed with people on other forums who have bashed Michigan and talked about how beautiful their beaches are by posting these next two pics and asking them to guess where these are. And people have guessed everywhere from parts of Florida to god knows where. And are surprised that it's 2 miles from my front door.

Endless trails near my home in Gladwin area its all around the State Forest. Excellent for Snowmobiles, Horses, Jeeps, or training your hunting dog. Great camping grounds and all kinds of fishing. N. m-18 between Gladwin and Houghton Lake.

Hay Revvy, the Hollyhock is a great looking cutter. It spent a little time in my area (Ludington) this summer when it was having rudder trouble I believe. I took a couple shots of it while it was being repaired.

Great pics Bydand. We have a free event every summer called "Be a tourist in your town" where the local trolley bus takes us through different attractions. The Hollyhock is one of the ones we actually get to go on. A couple years back my buddy and I got there toward the end of the event, so we had our own tour guide, it was really cool. We got to see the bridge, the galley, basically the whole ship. Your son would really love it.
