We are currently settled in Okemos, MI for a few days of work before our travels up to Picture Rocks National Lakeshore! The kids, from Mecosta and Osceola counties, are getting ready with a pre-trip hike in Nichols Lake National Forest today to review their photography skills, have a campfire, and go swimming to get excited for their adventure in the Upper Peninsula!
Updates from the Parks in Focus: Montana and Grand Canyon in Focus trips will be up soon—we’ve had a long way to travel between Missoula and the lower peninsula of Michigan! But after covering eight states in three days, we are ready to start actually exploring this one, despite it being (gasp!) our last trip of the summer.
Until next time,
Brian, Elena + Lauren (The Traveling Team)
