Yes, it exists and yes, we’ve been there, but definitely not done that. When our trip was planned about a decade ago, I neglected to research the climate up north, and consequently, learned from experience that it takes quite a bit for the upper half of the USA to thaw out and – the real show stopper – May is definitely not the place to be up north for us southerners!



  1. Fall foliage is just beautiful in the NorthEast, and it’s quite nice in the mountains here too.
    You from the south are just plain chicken 😛

    Don’t you mistake fall foliage with the drab surroundings up North in May! Lake Michigan near Green Bay was really cold. It was a really dreary ride that we went on all around Lake Michigan, and when we got to Lake Superior, a mist swept in from the Lake, and hit the pictorial “national seashore” from us. It was a trip that set back my long car drive adventures, especially because we didn’t really have the right clothes to wear for that weather! And the sun rarely came out – it was raining most of the drive in UP!

  3. o sb, Michigan is dry, dreary and a piece of land less visited the better. Sadly.

    I think you are talking about a part of Michigan. This post was about the U.P. portion which, per the link, gets really pretty this time of the year – like i said, when we were up there, it was about three months too soon.

    The trip in question was undertaken as Al Gore was still tweaking that wonderful invention of his – Ze Internet – better, when Yahoo was just born and wailing (and was yet to go on a vacation), when even an arm and a leg would’ve fetched you a just-a-bit-better-than-1200-baud internet connection … you get the point.
