Christmas Road Trips

This past week we took a few road trips. 
The snow is beautiful but the temps are so cold - too cold for this girl to go snowmobiling.. 
This morning we awoke to -14 degrees. 
But there isn't a cloud in the sky today,
 just the sunshine illuminating all the trees sporting their white overcoats. 
More snow coming tonight according to the weatherman! 


The above picture was taken at the Tahquamenon Falls Brewery.

The brewery is a beautiful cozy restaurant with a crackling fire, 
candles flickering on the tables, and great beer! 
Oh, and did I mention how good the food is?
This visit was quite unusual for us as it is usually a long wait to get a seat.

On our way to and from the Falls, we passed through the town of Paradise.

Last week we left early for appointments in the Soo. 
The sun was shining brightly, but the closer we got to the Soo...
(A fly-by shot)

The sun disappeared and so did our visibility.

We could hardly make out the International Bridge that connects Michigan to Canada.

Love that lake effect snow!

On another day we ventured south across the Mackinac Bridge into the lower peninsula.
Destination - Petoskey!

More lake effect snow in the distance.

Downtown was festively decorated.
We enjoyed wandering in and out of the shops.

Mr. Chris Moose watched us eat our chicken wings.

Crossing the Mackinac Bridge on our way back home. 
See the cutter?And that's Bois Blanc Island in the background.

Love my UP!
