As much as I like to travel in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, there is a downside: gnats. The come out of nowhere in epic proportions – it is as if we were enveloped in a cheap apocalypse horror movie. They get in your hair (of any length) and in your ears. I rinsed my hair out in the hotel more than once to dislodge the less than agile gnat that could not escape on his own. We saw workers in the inland swampy areas wearing hats with screens hanging down from the brims wrapping around their shoulders – that idea had merit.
Other than the gnats, however, we all had a great time!!!
