To the Tip of the Thumb

Today we headed up to Michigan! The main point of the trip is to kayak to Turnip Rock at the tip of the thumb, which we are going to do tomorrow. We left New Concord, Ohio at 9 AM. We arrived at our hotel in Bad Axe, Michigan around 4 PM. Bad Axe is about 20 minutes from Port Austin, Mi (the launch site for the Turnip Rock Trail). We are staying in Bad Axe because all of the local motels in Port Austin had a minimum stay of 3 nights because it’s summer. Along the way to Bad Axe, we passed through Toledo, OH, Ypsilanti, MI, Ann Arbor, MI, Flint, MI, and Imlay City, MI. For dinner, we went to a local restaurant called Rachel’s. The food was outstanding and it was very reasonably priced. Now we are back at our hotel getting ready for bed so that we can kayak out to Turnip Rock in the morning. Hopefully it doesn’t rain! The weather is looking very questionable…
