After a nice long sleep in our tent in Hiawatha Natl Forest of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, we are on the road again, and just in time. We missed the rain by about 20 minutes. It raining now, with no hopes of clear sky in sight. It's a perfect driving day to get more miles behind us. We are now at 1103 miles and GPS says 467 miles to go! Mara and are getting a chuckle out of UP MI convenience store supplies....about a dozen different kinds of whiskey ...

The population was 21,355 at the 2010 census, making it the most populated city of the UP. Note: the entire UP only has a little over 311,000 residence.

In town we saw T- shirts and signs with "Yooper" ...

We left the store with a few purchases . . . and headed to the next stop. There is ...
... the clouds were lifting and the sun was poking through the clouds. On this drive, there are several places where you can see Lake Superior. Munising is about 45 minutes or so from Marquette. We decided to stop for some lunch at an old restaurant--The Dog Patch!! But, we hadn't been to this one either in over a decade . . . and it, too, has become tired! We did get something to eat, but it was in the 'unremarkable but memorable' category--remember ...
