Great area! Be sure to see both the upper and lower falls at Taquamenon. Whitefish point has all the beautiful shoreline rocks. If you see people at the edge of the water stooped over, its the UP version of the "Sanibel Stoop", only they are picking up beautiful smooth round rocks. On the way back to Paradise from Taquamenon there is a little cafe on the left with some killer whitefish and a cold brew to slug it down with. Whitefish was one of our favorite places along with Barago SP on the western side of the UP.

The bad part is you'll miss the cherries coming ripe off the trees in mid-July in Door County. We are leaving Monday for a month's stay in Door County (just in time to get foundered on the fresh cherries!).

Last year we stayed in Door County and will be doing the same this time. I love Lake Michigan perch and there are some great fish fries. I can not be that complimentary about fish boils.The cherries are great. I didn't realize that some cherries are for cooking purposes and others can be directly consumed. The pies are great. Thanks for the information on the rocks at Whitefish, as I love to collect items as we travel.

You are right. The red cherries are for cooking and are very sour. The eating ones are red and yellow and are delicious. If you haven't tried the canned cherry salsa, don't miss it. It is such a taste sensation we always bring a couple of cases home with us. We will be stocking up on some extra jars of it to take to the FCU Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Rally in October. Can't wait!

Practical note..take lots of good bug spray. Black flies can carry you away. You will love the falls and Whitefish. Great place on way up is Wilderness Park near Mackinaw City. Sites right on the beach of Lake Michigan, looks like the Carribean at it's best! John
