Michigan’s desolate and heavily forested Upper Peninsula is virtually a no-man’s land. With less than a third of the state’s land area, the U.P. — as it’s called by locals — houses just three percent of Michigan’s residents.

Spring was perfect with mild days and clear nights just right for exploring and stargazing. We hiked through the abundant ruins during the day, marveling at the Chacoans’ architectural skills.

April 19, 2012

As a long-term advocate for motorized and non-motorized outdoor recreation, I see a plethora of news stories every day about public lands, camping, RVs and off-road trails, among countless others.
