(We just recently arrived in the Poconos, no pictures from here yet, although we did backpack thru here a few years ago)
We sit and watch our screen savers. some times(both monitors show our picture collection) we sorta play a game Identifying Where and what. She always looks at the date on the picture. I look for content. as they flash by 4-8 seconds apiece. I love it.
Ford Hq. on the left General Motors on the right.
Inside the SOO Locks connecting Lake’s Michigan and Superior.
Under the famous Mackinac Bridge connecting Lower Michigan to the Upper peninsula.
On Mackinac Island, no motor vehicles allowed by law.
Across the Upper Peninsula I caught this picture. Below the Yoopers Tourist Trap sign there is a great old car, ‘54 or 55 Buick Century converted into a snow plow. OUCH. We didn’t know Cher at the time, but we musta passed close to her & Thom’s house.
Ah, met these fine folk, that is my buddy Sy on the right. (Grown now)
They called him SLIM, I didn’t argue, I didn’t even joke about him being nearly bald.
Also met this lady and fell in love (with her Quilt) With her also!!
These from The Concrete Park, Phillips, WI. Some of these 230 figurines are corny, some childish, some neat, but all actually works of art. Concrete and things picked up off the highway broken glass and bottles all hand formed by one man,Fred Smith. You must see it to realize the work involved in putting this together, he was 62 yrs young when he started in 1948.
We may continue on this trip. I was just seeing some and wanted to show them.
That same year, we crossed the Tetons from Idaho into Jackson Hole.
Beautiful 1956 Ford customized the continental kit was a biggie.
