ABOUT UP NORTH MICHIGAN
To those of us who grew up in Michigan, "up north" began north of Clare and in some cases north of Indian River. 100 years ago "up north" meant the Frontier, any place north of the Sauk Trail.
ACROSS THE FRONTIER
Historically speaking it wasn't always this way. When Michigan was being opened to exploration and settlement, most folks arrived in Detroit first. Going west from there usually involved a journey down the Great Sauk Trail, US 12 today, to Chicago. That road was the frontier. Up north of that road was wilderness Michigan where even wolverines were known to prowl.
Traditionally we think of "up north" in Michigan as the territory from Clare to "the bridge". Treasures and legends abound from Lake Huron to Lake Michigan.
The upper peninsula of Michigan is as different from the lower as can be imagined. Nearly a third of the land mass of the state, the upper offers amazing variety east and west.
