I love Traverse Magazine and the MyNorth website. I surf it almost daily-even if just briefly. So much great information of ALL of Northern Michigan! It is a great site for anyone visiting a place we are not completely familiar with or those of us who already live here. This includes Antrim County, Torch Lake, Elk Lake, Elk Rapids, Grand Traverse County, Traverse City, Leelanau County and anywhere Up North-both Nothern Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula. There is an Interactive Activity Locator, interesting articles, recipes and plenty to keep you interested. If you want to know where to go or what there is to do, this is your one-stop site.
I like the Vernor's Chicken recipe and the useful article on "How to Identify Poison Ivy", Farmers' Market information and so much more. You will likely stay on this site for a while and you may even want to subscribe to Traverse Magazine.
Check out the Photo of the Day...today's is one of my shots from the Grass River Natural Area in beautiful Bellaire in Antrim County, MI right on Torch Lake. It is a great place to visit and best of all, it is FREE, and donations are appreciated. You can walk on the boardwalks through the seemingly mystical forest where the canopy of trees are above and the ground is covered in green. You may just see something you have never seen before. Some of the foliage have signs indicating what they are. This is great for young and old. Get the kids outside, put away the video games (that shall remain nameless) and just enjoy the outdoors!
Check it out and enjoy "Surfing" Up North, Michigan!
