    Michigan's Western UP

    Spent most of last week touring ORV routes and fire trails in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula. It was a flat-out wonderous trip. In my entire life I've never enjoyed such an incredible Autumn display. Eastern end of the UP, still almost all green...very spotty. But the western third? Tons of color everywhere.

    Back to work, so time to wade through images and video will take a while...but here are a few shots.

    Howdy! You're in my neck of the woods. If you're looking to see a little more this weekend let me know! I've got some local know-where-to-go magic to contribute!

    Yep. Stayed at the new Country Inn & Suites in Houghton, this time. CI&S is also pet friendly. Had our Swissy, Freyja, with us on this trip.Kim & Freyja - Porcupine 2019 2.jpg

    Tried to get out to High Rock Bay and the rocket range. ORV routes much east of Copper Harbor are restricted right now though . Perhaps next year.

    Nice, we took a road trip to Florence, WI and Iron Mtn, MI with the family about 4 years ago. We have a family cottage on Spread Eagle Lake. Never been up there this time of year on the summer. Looks amazing.

    They shouldn't be restricted? I was out that way today. They are starting preparation for LSPR this week so perhaps some preliminary repairs for the Subie Bros

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
