Default Ah. Beautiful Michigan (pictures)

Got bored today so I thought I would walk/drive around and take some pictures of the area I live in. I love it out here. The nearest town (by town I mean more than 3,000 people) is 12 miles away!
A Typical Michigan Road

The field acrost from my house

Side shot of my front yard

View of feilds behind house

Neighbor'* horses



"back yard" as I like to call it. lol

Another side yard

Going down the road I live on.

Farther down the road

yes. Me driving.. I swear that I'm not mad! I just usually look like it. lol. maybe that'* why people are afraid of me usually.?

The lake that is half a mile from my house (one road over)

another view of the lake

shot of the dash while driving. Can't drive much faster on the roads right by my house because of the pot holes that are big enough to swallow your car whole. :(

looking up through the sunroof. beatiful day!

another field. Just another angle of the one that is acrost the street from my house.



So yup. In case any of you wondered, I DO live out in the middle of nowhere! lol.

Michigan is very beautiful!! I love the scenery driving along the Old St. Joe River. I spent every 4th of July in Buchanan, MI for the motocross races and the scenery is awesome.

Where do you live in MI? And what lake is that??

Michigan is definitely beautiful. Gotta love days like today to make up for all that rain!

I live near Battle Creek. (or 35 miles from Kalamazoo since that'* the biggest city near me.)
That lake is called Lee lake. It'* a very clean lake. very nice for fishing. In fact, I was going to take a picture of it up close at the public access, but there were so many trucks with boats attached that I couldn't get up close enough to take a picture there. lol.

Wife and I just came through BC and K-zoo this past weekend for the graduation ceremony at K College.

There are lots of nice towns along I-94.

I wish I lived in the middle of nowhere. Back in the day Lakeville was pretty far out, but now its suburbia hell. BTW: 1000 rpms @ 45mph, wow, you must get 30+ mpg.

Actually it was my sister-in-law that graduated from K. She completed her Bachelor of Arts so we attended the ceremony.....and was the ceremony ever L O N G! ! ! I've only heard good things about K. She loved it, however, would often gripe that the work load was intense. And my father-in-law would complain that it costs so much!!! Good luck!
