Pure Michigan

September 20 - 26, 2017 I 7 Days

Venture north with us next autumn as we escape into a world of natural wonders - the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - bountifully beautiful yet sparsely inhabited. Residents here revel in its north country ruggedness. Referred to as “Gitche Gumee” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in The Song of Hiawatha, Lake Superior extends as far as the eye can see with her crystal clear waters sparkling in the autumn sun. This is Pure Michigan!
