Yes you did add nothing. Good to know you are acknowledging you didn't add anything.

Even your smart-assed replies are lame and useless.

I hate to have to agree with scolls on this, but there really is nothing like the area he is talking about in Michigan. The region north of Sault Ontario is absolutely stunning, and Im not sure we have anything that can beat it. Dont get me wrong, Michigan is loaded with beautiful scenery, but that area of Ontario is spectacular. When I lived in the Soo, we would drive up there on weekends and explore the wilderness areas. The train ride he talks about is really neat as well, but its expensive. Its worth the price to do it once, but you can see all kinds of great scenery from a car as well. The provinical parks on the shores of Lake Superior very accessable.

Yeah...as awesome as Michigan is, we are just not big enough to support that kind of beauty. Thats a huge beautiful area up that way.
But....we do have the great lakes which are the great equalizers....maybe not quite as equal, but very close. Especially when you can walk up and down the shores never knowing what you will find.http://record-eagle.com/local/x11102...-washes-ashore

Come on over to western Upper Michigan. The Marquette/Copper Country areas are among to most scenic in the winter anywhere in the US. From snow machine trails, down hill,cross country, to snowshoeing. We have the U.P. 200 sled dog races , the Olympic skating, Ice hockey, ice sculpture, winter festivals...the list goes on and on. Winter has become in some areas of the U.P. a season that rivals summer as a favorite time of the year. This season looks to be the most promising in years. COME ON UP, and enjoy our winter wonderland...the season starts soon, right after deer hunting most years. ( Nov. 15th).....keep an eye out for the weather, we guarrentee snow, and more snow !.... Its the other Michigan , so many don't think of, yes it can be a long drive , or a short flight, your choice , etherway , its worth it !
