The Great Turtle: Mackinac Island

August 19, 2014

Mackinac Island really is shaped like a great turtle.  I experienced its contours as I rode up and down many hills on my bike. 

But sometimes you just have to walk. After looking through Arch Rock from the top, the way down is on a new stairway through the woods.  People from all over the world visit this beautiful island.  It has a rich history as the Indians used this place as a trading post and then later it was the site of the War of 1812 between the English and Americans 200 years ago.
