... but this time I had everything locked down...so no dish shrapnel this time! We arrived at Grand Sable Visitor Centre and were told that there actually was camping up ahead...in Grand Marais (Seney) Michigan. What an amazing place! Right on Lake Superior! We are just about 20 minutes from what looks to be an amazing sunset and we expect to see lots of stars tonight. The real coup would be to see the Northern Lights as well... In spite ...
