Great Lakes Music Tour

Last month, we traveled north to the Great Lakes on a music tour (and family vacation) with our daughters, the Vogts Sisters.

They performed five times on our twelve-day outing, including three festivals, a coffee shop, and a performance at a really cool historic theater. 
Learn more about their performances on tour HERE.

We learned about shipwrecks, toured lighthouses and watched an iron ore ship come through the Soo Locks in Sault Ste Marie.

We hunted for stones along the shores of Lake Superior, Lake Huron, and Lake Michigan.

We saw some beautiful waterfalls at Tahquamenon Falls.

We traveled through hundreds of miles of Iowa cornfields, and crossed over the Mighty Mississippi,
as well as the Straits of Mackinac on the Mackinac Bridge.

We ate at a really cool Polish Restaurant at Legs Inn in Cross Village, MI. 
We also ate Wisconsin cheese curds that squeaked, pasties from Muldoons in Munising, MI and some creamy Mackinac Fudge.

On our way home, we visited the birthplace of John Wayne--one of our favorite actors of all time.

We traveled with my parents and stayed in their amazing RV. The temperatures were wonderful, 
ranging from the mid-50's to the mid-70's--while those back home in Kansas had to live through triple-digit degree days. 
It's good to be home, but it's fun to look back on all we did.
