I shit on Michigan. I really do. Been coming here for the past 13 years and I'm like over the state. (And don't nobody ask me if I've been 'up north' to the Great Lakes cause yes, but I've also been to the Côte d'Azur and my boughetto ass prefers the south of France.) However, for some reason I had never visited The Heidelberg Project which is in downtown Detroit and a pleasant surprise to the now crack-house mansions from the Motown days when Detroit used to be poppin'. Only 15 mins worth of time but such a positive message on transforming a neighborhood–that previously was unwalkable due to crime and poverty–into a giant performance art piece where tourists and residents alike walk the streets checking out the transformed homes of whimsical junkyard art. The juxtaposition of a man walking his Rottweiler with a spiked collar down the street with a polka dot house in the background was delight to my eyes. Def worth your time if you're in the area to support the mission behind the artist, Tyree Guyton.

No place we'd rather be than kayaking our way around Michigan.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is located in Michigan's Northern Peninsula along the shores of Lake Superior outside the small town of Munising. While the park offers nearly 100 miles of trails, arguably the most scenic hug the towering limestone cliffs providing endless views on clear days. Don't forget to make a side trip to the historic Au Sable Lighthouse before calling this great two-day adventure complete! || Photo and words by Outdoor Project contributor Aaron Shady #findyouradventure #visitmichigan

"You have?" said Toad. "What did you write in the letter?"
Frog said, "I wrote 'Dear Toad, I am glad that you are my best friend. Your best friend, Frog.'" #igersworldwide #igersoftheday #photographyislife #igersmichigan #igers_michigan #igersmidwest #frogandtoad #childrensbooks #lovethosebooks #memories #latenightpost #ajphotolatenight #thisisafrog #soadorable #camouflage #blendingin #lovenature #fauna #seeinggreen #bachelorette #lakeside #lakefront #laketemplene #michiganphotographer #ilovemichigan #visitmichigan #lakelife #lakehouse #hgtv #dreamhome
