Road Trip to Michigan

For the last 3 weeks I have been on a road trip to Michigan. I just got back two nights ago at 1:45. We went to Petoskey to see my mom's side of the family. While we were there we did a lot of stuff.

Walking in a thinner part of the cave.

Following the ranger to the cave's entrance.
We first stopped at Mammoth Cave for 3 nights. And we went on 2 tours. The first tour that we went on was 1/4 of a mile and took 2 hours, it was at the new entrance. Our second tour we went on was the Historic tour it was 2 miles long and took 2 hours. We entered the cave at the old entrance for that tour. (That is me in the green jacket)

When we got to Petoskey Michigan we went to the condo we were sharing with my Grandparents. For the first few days we relaxed and went shopping in downtown Petoskey. Once my aunt, uncle, and cousin got here we were more active. One day all we did was visit with family and go out to dinner. I thought it was a nice day.

One day we went to the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. We climbed all the way to the top. My dad and I didn't way our shoes up the sand so our feet got a little burnt when we got close to the top. We also went to Mackinac Island. On Mackinac there are no cars you either ride a bike or a horse drawn buggie. We also bought some famous Mackinac fudge. The fudge was delicious. We took a bike tour where you ride around the Island. Over all I think Mackinac Island was the best part of our trip to Michigan.

On the way back to Florida we stopped in Ohio to see one of my Mom's friends. Sarah and Micheal had three dogs two were Papillions.  One was so small that it only weighed 4 pounds! There dogs were very cute and Micheal had taught them tricks. One trick was to jump over his leg the other was to spin. The drive to Ohio was 8 hours long.
 The next day we got up late and got home late. It was a 16 hour drive and we got home at 1:45. Surprisingly my dog did not bark to much in the car. I also read a couple a books I hadn't read yet  and I will post about those in the next couple days.

  1. Mammoth Cave was definitely cool. I keep thinking anout how we were more than 200 feet below the surface! Glad you had a good time too.
