  1. A Few of Our Favorite Fall Things

    A Few of Our Favorite Fall Things
    Fall is one of the shortest yet most spectacular seasons of the year in Northern Michigan. And if steamy summer days stretch on through September and biting winds start blowing ahead of schedule in early November, you might just blink and miss this glorious time of year! All the more reason to be purposeful about squeezing in autumn activities while you can.

  4. Cherry Republic's Leaf Day

    Cherry Republic's Leaf Day
    Leaf Day was created by Cherry Republic to celebrate the amazing colors of fall, and to take a day to reflect or enjoy the outdoors in the last of our good weather. We are all so busy all summer and into fall that we don’t often find time to just enjoy the outdoors. Leaf Day will allow us to do so during the most beautiful time of year in Northern Michigan.

    A Walk to School - Part Two
    At 5:30am on Friday, May 30, Bob and his two boys put on their coats and headed out the door for school. That day was no ordinary day though - they planned to walk the 8 miles from their home in downtown Glen Arbor to Glen Lake school.

  7. Hiking to North Manitou Island

    Hiking to North Manitou Island
    On Thursday, March 6th, 2014, we attempted something that hasn't been done for 40 years: to hike the treacherous ice across the Manitou Passage to the islands 8 miles out. The weather created the perfect window for us. The bitter cold of the previous week was replaced by temperatures in the mid to high 20s with clear skies and no wind. The forecast for following days called for warm weather and wind. It was now or never!
