News from the Week

With the holiday event season winding down, we were actually able to spend some time building out our Ski Leelanau section, taking a look at the good and bad for northern Michigan ski resorts, exploring Lake Manitou on North Manitou Island and Florence Lake on South Manitou with help from the Enterprise and the National Park and checking out the long-vanished Northport Beach Hotel. Expect us to focus more on things like this over the winter!
