Michigan farmland. I was moving West across the top of the thumb and took dirt roads as I headed towards Sebewaing. Sebewaing was depressing. Perhaps it was because it was Sunday, but the town seemed empty and lifeless. On the way there I enjoyed the rolling farmland and found a lot of muddy trails. I got my pantlegs soaked and muddy too. Now I understand how off-roaders might be a bit unhappy with Trailwings.

I spent a better part of my second day checking out all the paths that led to Lake Huron. The weather was hot and humid and the sun came out in the afternoon. This was a typical marsh scene along the route.

This photo is at a roadside park:

Can you spot my DR650?

This was the morning of the final day of my weekend tour around Michigans' thumb. I was greeted by heavy fog so I had a blast taking photos in the mist.



Okay, here are some better shots of my bike and the fog...

Beautiful

Great photos. You make Michigan look fantastic.

I gotta get a better camera! (and maybe some patience, artistic ability, ...)
