Oh man, going from everyone talking about summer excitement to the opening of the ski slopes--just another day in Michigan! I can't believe we had 60's last week & now the snow is flying--even without the help of a machine! Ug, how long until our nice Michigan summer is back?

Hope you had a nice trip to Crystal Mountain--it does look like a nice place to go! Happy skiing to those of you who love the white stuff!

Glad to snow stayed to the north. Here in Zeeland nothing but cold.

These pictures were taken while we were driving on US31 from Boyne to Crystal





We stopped in Traverse City at a place Called Mabels.. We had wonderful service and the food was great. A family diner was exactly what we were looking for..

And my favorite part of the whole weekend!



We stopped in Frankenmuth on our way home. I'll post a couple pics I took there hopefully tomorrow..

Frankenmuth will be a nut house until probably January.

We went to Frankenmuth and Birch Run on the 13th which was when they were having "Deer Widow's Weekend" and it was total chaos. The line for Zehender's was out the door and lined up to almost the parking lot. When we got there it was busy, but not that bad. I think we only had to wait like 30 minutes for a table, but I think the wait by the time we left was well over an hour. Bronner's was just insane. The best time to go to Frankenmuth I think is on a weekday during one of the off season months like April or August.

It was not bad at all yesterday. We got there about 3 and was immediately sat at Barvian inn.. Even walking around wasn't bad. But I did talk to someone who was there on Saturday and they said you couldn't even walk it was so busy..

I have really had a craving for Zehnders (or Bavarian Inn for that matter), for the past month. I just don't want to spend the time driving up there.

Having lived in Gaylord for many years, I can also say that I do not miss the sights from Boyne and Crystal. . .snow is one of my least favorite things in the world.

Hope you had a great trip!

On a really sour note, has everyone seen this news story? Morenci is within ten miles of my home and it is very difficult to comprehend something like this in such a small area. Not exactly the way Lenawee County wants to make it into the national spotlight.

My family did a bike ride this past summer along part of 131, on a beautiful, warm sunny day.... looks strange to see it all snowy and cold!
