Trenary, an Upper Peninsula farming town of two bars, one flashing traffic light and a grocery store that posts snapshots of customers in its window. This year’s race is expected to raise $7,000 for new town welcome signs and other community projects through entry fees, souvenir sales and donations from the bars.
I stopped to take this because I like how the ice and water glistened on Lake Michigan. This was on the way from Petoskey to Trenary.
This Big Boy was in St. Ignace and I couldn’t help but stop and take a photo. This is really funny to me.
