Michigan Fall Travel

Michigan Fall Travel is Colorful!

Michigan has some of the most vibrant fall color of any state in the USA.

There are many Michigan Fall Color driving routes that you can find online. The best one I have personally have taken more than once is the M119 Hwy Tunnel of Trees route from Harbor Springs to Cross Village. Its winding and narrow, but oh so beautiful!

Michigan‘s Upper Peninsula has some great color routes too! An outstanding color tour is in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Start at Twin Lakes on M-26 Hwy and go to see Lake Roland. Then take Hwy 41 all the way to Phoenix, Michigan and get back on M-26 and go north to Copper Harbor. Many beautiful stops along the way.

We have a Honda Odyssey van that is altered with a sleeping platform for the times we can’t find a dog friendly motel or cabin. We also bring along our emergency survival kit, and a dog survival kit. Another great item we keep a couple of in the vehicle is a Life Straw Personal Water Filter. Could be a life saver! And of course a good first aid kit. One other thing to think about when you are back in the puckerbrush, is a hand crank radio/cell phone charger. You just never know. So there are a few recommendations* for travel gear.

As we get deep into fall, our thoughts are already turning to the south. My friend has a place in Mississippi near the Gulf that I would like to visit. Get some fishing in, photography, and maybe kayaking in the bayous. I think that would be a fantastic week long trip to get away from the winter weather in Michigan!

Kash the Dog

Kash the Dog really likes the cool Autumn air, filled with tantalizing smells and rustling leaves caused by scampering squirrels. On our Blue Racer Ranch, the moss trails get covered with brightly colored leaves, and the fresh air makes our daily walk extra pleasurable.

OK, with the Michigan Fall Travel behind us, heading towards the white and cold of a Michigan winter, we are heading out to get another short walk in before the frost sets in.

Hug your dog, travel safe, be prepared.
