Birthday Vacation: Day 2

Day two of my vacation began around 9:45am which was later than planned but since I didn’t sleep until 4am it wasn’t so bad.  We headed out of the motel and saw it was super foggy! YES!!  McDonald’s was the breakfast of the day.  It wasn’t the best but it did it’s purpose.  Time to hit the road.

While we were cruising we remembered these sick abandoned and haunted houses we had stumbled upon a few years ago and decided to track them down.  They weren’t too hard to find and the energy seemed less sinister but was still present.  I hope the spirits will be able to rest and not be trapped in suffering there much longer.  We had more balls this time and got close to the houses and got better photos.

I loved to see the elevated and mountainous land as we got further into the Upper Penninsula.  It is so beautiful and full of abundant life.

We found a really gorgeous nature trail that we took through the lush woods and down to the water.  The bugs were INSANE and we did not have bug spray on hand which made me turn into a little bitch as I was getting eaten alive by bugs.  The beauty of it all still shined through my itchy misery however.

We made our way down to the ever-eerie Lake Superior and it was breathtaking.  It was covered in fog (or the spirits of all the dead in it’s depths) My soul was about to explode with all of my luck of catching fog on this trip thus far.

Our next scenic pull off was the site of a gorgeous waterfall and one of the coolest trails I’ve seen.  The trail had trees growing ON TOP OF ROCKS! WHAT?! Trees are the coolest things on the planet.  There were also Siamese trees lol.  The scenery was breathtaking, similar to photos I’ve seen of Washington.  We didn’t get a chance to get through the entire trail to see the large waterfall but the lower falls were gorgeous.  (I’m on my way to that trail again now to catch the big one)

–I am going to make a separate post to highlight the amazing cemetery and bizarre trees–
At this point the fog was EVERYWHERE so I was shooting while hanging out of the car window to not miss any of natures most beautiful phenomena.

The last main stop of the day was a Native American burial ground.  I want to say that I would NEVER take photos of graves to be disrespectful or distasteful.  The foggy and eerie scenery was so alive in the cemetery it was impossible to pass up it’s beauty.  I made sure to stay on the main trail and not stop on anyone.  I explained what I was doing in there and that I only wanted to display their beauty and the energy seemed to lighten.  Ironically, it started to rain while I was walking around in there.

We took a few more road side stops to capture the fog on the hills and mountains and arrived to our amazingly adorable hotel around 10pm.  It was the sweetest little place ever.  Every room had a different theme and it was decorated like someone’s house.  You could hear all of the sounds of nature through the window. Perfect place for a good nights sleep…
