Our Upper Peninsula Tour

While visiting at our daughter Emily’s home in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, our g’children decided to take us to a metal sculpture
park that Starlet’s school had visited for a class outing earlier.
Lakenenland is located outside of Harvey, just before arriving at Marquette, Michigan.
I have to tell you I drove past this park many times when we lived in the U.P., not even knowing what it was.
If you happen to visit this area, you must stop!
It is well worth it and it’s free.
Here’s our dear Starlet with the whole world on her
back.
I think the g’children climbed on every single piece of sculpture.
It sure gave me opportunity for a lot of good photo
taking.
Our Star reaching for the stars!
At first Lambert wouldn’t let me get a photo of him, but by the time we were half way through our tour he was wanting his picture taken on every sculpture.
I can’t begin to share all the sculpture photos with you.
And I’m sure you’re thinking, “Thank goodness.”
I can’t leave you though without showing you this awesome picnic shelter at the park.
I could slap up a few walls and live here!
Oh, I forgot to mention that it is right across the road from Lake Superior, so I would definitely feel right at home here.
********************************************************
We did get a skiff of snow here last night.
But that’s okay because I don’t plan to go outside today anyway.
Something that I did bring home with me that I wish I hadn’t was a rotten cold!
I’ve been pumping myself full of Echinacee and drinking my sore throat tea, so I’m sure it will pass quickly…
I hope this finds all of you well!
Take care-Kimberly

  4. Lovely pictures and I love all of the sculptures not to mention all of the happy faces on the kids. You know I have been to the U.P. when we went to Michigan. The one place I can see in my head that you have shared about. I thought it was just beautiful. I hope you feel better soon, the kids and grand kids in my family have it now. I keep hoping I stay healthy.
