Relaxing On the Shores of MarquetteMarquette Michigan

One of my favorite cities in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is the city of Marquette.

I had not been here in several years when I stopped here last week while checking on a Forest Inventory project we are working on North of here in the Huron Mountains.

On this day while others were hard at work in the woods, I took a break and watered the dogs in Lake Superior, admired the view, took a few pics, and spoke with a cute lifeguard who told the dogs they had to go as soon as they got a drink.

Fortunately I had one of those plastic bags in my pocket that city folks use to pick up dog deposits, since Drake displayed his displeasure by leaving a little gift behind. 

I did however do the environmentally responsible thing though and deposit the contents of the bag out in the forest later in the day. This fertilizer will not be put into a landfill where it will be wasted for the next million years; instead it is doing its part to fertilize an Aspen tree today.




Enjoy the pics and watch for more posts about some of the other things that I love about this city.

I love this and often have people tell me about how terrific Michigan is! I'm bookmarking (had to figure that out since it's changed) and hope to use it in some future Tuesday Travelogue, Bob.

Hi Bob, I really enjoy taking trips to Michigan, though I haven't been able to go for some time now, with or without dogs.

I feel like everything looks more beautiful by the shore or body of water.
