While there, we asked the staff if there MIGHT be a coffee shop in the nearby town of Ashland, WI...We had to do a little extra navigating of their downtown, but we ended a 3 day espresso dearth at the Black Cat Coffeehouse...definitely a funky place!
Then it was on to the U.P. -- yes, the Upper Peninsula, where all the "Yoopers" live! We drove through miles of beautiful deciduous forest, bedecked in the start of fall colors. We learned that Yoopers seem to like "pasties" as every town had a pasty shop...and fudge -- lots of fudge shops. Wild turkeys crossed the road in front us, and after miles and miles of forest, we got our first look at Lake Michigan...like an ocean! We spent the night at Manistique, a lovely little lakeside town...which had a fiberglass moose at every business along the strip! : )
