Wordless Wednesdays - The Upper Penisula in Winter

In honor of my upcoming trip to the UP this weekend to snowmobile! (and getaway with my hubby alone)This is an almost Wordless Wednesday!

These are some of my favorite photos I took while Snowmobiling in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in January of 2007! The UP is beautiful any time of the year, but I love exploring it on a snowmobile!

A partially frozen river near Lake Superior

This is a frozen waterfall that we had to hike to see. It was about a mile round trip in the snow with all of our snowmobile gear on! What a work out!

Oh my goodness - how beautiful! I grew up in Canada and we used to love snowmobiling. These pictures totally remind me of my childhood.
