Soo Locks

For 2017 I am continuing my resolution of going at least one place I have never been before. In 2016 I was able to explore so much of the beautiful Great Lakes State that I call home. I was so glad I was able to experience the Soo Locks of Sault Ste. Marie and experience all four of Michigan’s Great Lakes.

In 2017, I am hoping to for another epic summer camping trip. This time, I am planning to head down to North Carolina’s Outer Banks. I’ve been planning this trip using the road trip planner, Furkot. Back in ’08 we went backpacking in the Outer Banks, so I’ve been using Furkot to discover what new places we can discover while returning to a familiar destination. The current plan involves a night in Williamsburg, Virginia and two nights in Shenandoah National Park. I absolutely love planning trips. Its possible that I enjoy the planning as much as the travelling. Is that weird?

I am hoping to continue exploring Michigan this year as well. This year, I hope to spend some time exploring the thumb region, as that is one part of the state I have never set foot in. I would also like to spend some time at the most southwestern state park, Warren Dunes. I’m also hoping to get back to Straits State Park and spend a few nights under the lights of the Mackinac Bridge.

Where do you want to explore this year? Let me know in the comments or on social media! Thanks for stopping by! If you like my photos be sure to “like” my Facebook Page, follow me on Instagram, and Flickr! To see inside my camera bag, check out my Gear Page.
