* The Upper Peninsula of Michigan named as one of the 2006 "Top-10 Summer Destinations in the World" by Sherman's Travel, a leading national publisher of travel sales and specials.


And beyond them stood the forest,
Stood the groves of singing pine-trees,
Green in Summer, white in Winter,
Ever sighing, ever singing.
Song of Hiawatha, W.W. Longfellow
