My new flickr set describes the trip I took during fall break this year. I took the kids out of school, drove to West Michigan to pick up my dad and then the four of us drove to the Upper Peninsula to the place where all of our hearts are the happiest, Treasure Island.
There are thousands of visual secrets that the forest and the shore and the sunsets disclose in October that the summer traveller never experiences. I forgot my camera and had to do my best to capture the beauty and adventure with my cell phone. Inasmuch as I succeeded, it's only a dim reflection of the actual experience.
