Inside Outside: The Upper Peninsula chosen for Outside's Editors' Choice list

The Upper Peninsula gets its due in Outside magazine's February 2012 issue. Outside's admittedly arbitrary and unscientific but ridiculously funny and cool "63 Perfect Things" includes The U.P. at #46.

Wednesday Waterfall: Scott Falls

Scott Falls is only about 20 feet from the side of M-28 just west of Munising, one of the busiest roads in the Upper Peninsula. It’s so close you can actually pull up, roll down your window and snap a photo from your vehicle.

Wednesday Waterfall: Bond Falls

Bond Falls is located on the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River near the tiny hamlet of Paulding, in the Western Upper Peninsula.


The 50-foot high falls tumbles over a 100-foot-wide fist of dark, fractured rock below the Bond Falls Flowage. Below the falls the river pools around a small island, then slips away into the dense U.P. woods to the north.

Snowy Owls Invade Upper Peninsula

A wave of snowy owl sightings is sweeping across the Upper Peninsula. The arctic birds are linked to the boom and bust lemming cycle, and every few years when the little critters' population crashes, snowy owls are pushed south to the Lake Superior region in search of other…

living an artful life from petoskey to leelanau county at d'art for art preview

I stood still to take it all in, before examining the Walstrom Marine boat warehouse turned art gallery at Petoskey Crooked Tree Arts Center's D'Art for Art Pre-view Party in Harbor Springs.
