*I was debating whether or not I wanted to write anything about my recent trip to Mackinac Island, seeing as it is one of Michigan's most popular tourist destinations and there is probably a ton out there for you to read up on already. Of course, you could say this about many places, but the vacation-y cliché-ness of it all was still pushing me away from posting something.
Ultimately, I decided these nine photos could do most of the work for me. Had I known I was going to slap together a photo essay in advance, I probably would have gotten some other shots, as well, but I think this group of images does the day-long stay on the island a sufficient amount of justice.
