Crossing Death's Door

Sounds suitably creepy for the season, doesn't it? I finally learned how Door County got it's name. Door County is a peninsula that juts up into Lake Michigan and creates, on its west side, Green Bay (of Packers fame). Off the tip of Door county is an island, Washington Island.

... The other four times were in Michigan over the last two days. Each time, the Michigan Department of Public Works saw fit to announce this important passage. It's the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole (did you know that? I didn't). We crossed it in Wisconsin this afternoon and the only demarcation was the 44th Parallel Winery. Wisconsin is clearly much less impressed with it's singular geography.

I stopped in Sturgeon ...

    ... a hard time with the idea of leaving Michigan, even though we're finally going to Door County, I've been waiting since 2010 to see Door County! We had a little difficulty finding this city park in Menominee but it was a nice little city park right one the river. Just across the river is the state of Wisconsin!

    After spending a few days in Chicago we were happy to arrive at Peninsula State Park. We couldn't have asked for a better campground with the park having a site right on Lake Michigan. Shortly after making dinner on our first night we were surprised when a park ranger drove around the campground announcing severe thunderstorm. We wisely moved to cover in the bathroom becoming concerned when the park ranger drove by again to announce a tornado warning was in affect. ...

      The cottage was clean and well set-up. We stayed in Cottage C, which has two bedrooms, living room and a kitchen. There is a grill at back of the cottage. We went over to the dock to see sunrise. The sea level was blocked by woods far away. Overall speaking it was a great place to stay.
