Michigan's Upper Peninsula Beauty
The U.P… also known as ‘God's Country’ and to many others it’s a hidden gem. From sunrises and sunsets over Lake Superior to the remote waterfalls, the clear waters of Lake Superior, ice caves, fall colors like no others and endless hiking trails that leave breathe taking views of the U.P. and is unlike any other place, EHH.
On any given day you can find me chasing a back road or exploring a place not many have been or sometimes a destination that is known but not experienced yet. There is something that hits you when out in nature and brings over an ‘I want more’ feeling. This feeling drives me to explore more and more of the beauty that is literally in our backyard. It brings over a calmness but yet shows you how beautiful the U.P. truly is by exploring.
You never know what inspiration you may bring to someone as it comes in many forms, well my way is by showing others where my exploring brings me and what is out there in nature. Our time here is only borrowed, time we will never get back and which has no time stamp. I use to share photos with my mom and show her the places I’ve been or saw but that all ended in 2017 when her time was called. Since then my appreciation for what I’m surrounded by has taken off and over my mind and given me a direction of how I want to live my life which is where my inspiration comes from. Mom would want me to share with others as I did with her of what beauty is out there, the same way she taught me in many aspects of life.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
U.P. Life is a song about the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that I had the honor to work with Adam Carpenter & The Upper Band to showcase the true beauty we get to see.
