Toodlin' Down to St. Ignace
We're on the back side of our journey, worn out and excited to write about the many places we've been from Iowa to Michigan and what ever else we run into on our way home. We had a Toodlin' trip from Hancock to St. Ignace. That means not a lot of stopping, but just sitting back and enjoying what ever we run into. Here's a short photo journey to wrap up our time in the Upper Peninsula. Hover over the photos for more information, or click to go to the gallery for additional photos.
Wilson, MI - Tavern DoorWilson, an unincorporated community in Menominee County Michigan, was originally called Ferry Switch. In 1872 and 1873, the Chicago and North Western Railway built a station here to serve local charcoal kilns. Wilson Michigan's railway station closed in 1950.
After crossing into the lower peninsula, we had one more 'pen' to do. Next photo blog we'll take you to the Leelanau Peninsula and our push home through Amish country in Indiana.
During our time in St. Ignace we stayed at Tiki RV Park, where it was discovered back in the 1950's that it was actually built on a centuries old Indian Burial ground (they've moved the discovered bones and artifacts since). Great management and wonderful place to stay. Good Passport rate, but expect all RV parks to be high in this area because of the local tourism. We enjoyed our stay at Tiki, although the wifi was sparse and we could never get on.
