One of the best places to vacation in the USA.
Little Traverse Bay is more about beach time than actual hiking. And I might be a little prejudiced in thinking Petoskey is one of the best places to vacation in the USA, because with a few exceptions I have come up here every summer my whole life. Northern Michigan in general is one of the best kept secrets as Lake Michigan's water is so blue and turquoise, and the skies are always changing and beautiful.
Mug Adventures: Pine Knob Mountain Loop, Housatonic Meadows State Park, Connecticut
Pine Knob Mountain loop via Appalachian trail. It's a 2.7 mile loop with only 700ft elevation gain that provides some fabulous views of the Housatonic Meadows.
Rugged shores on Lake Superior in route to Montreal Falls.
Be pre-warned the trail head is pretty remote, and the roads get fairly rugged. We ended up parking before the trail head as the roads were muddy, and we did not want to get stuck without cell service. With that said my favorite part of the hike was actually the rugged lake superior shoreline we hike along on the way out to the waterfalls.

My Favorite Home Decor
A house feels more like home when I have my collage wall of adventure pictures are hung, and pottery is out and ready to be used. This is my second rendition of my adventure wall that I have installed in our Rocky Hill, Connecticut home. I love seeing photos from some of our favorite outdoors adventures. You might notice a trend...rock features are basically my favorite thing!
Mug Adventures: Bass Harbor in Acadia National Park, Maine
If you are looking for a good date night or way to wrap up an evening in Acadia National Park I highly recommend stopping at Charlotte's Legendary Lobster Pound to grab some seafood. Then keep heading south to the Bass Harbor Light House where you can walk down a .2 long trail sit on some rocks and watch the sunset.
Ps. are you looking for a mug or cup to bring on your adventures?

Hunter's Point Park by Copper Harbor with Tall Travel Mug
There are several short walking trails at this park. It's more about soaking in the amazing lake superior shores. Plus the rocks are are amazing, as they are tumbled so much on this shore that they are actually glossy!

This was a 4 mile out and back trail from the Schoodic Campground to the top of Buck Cove Mountain.

Mug Adventures: Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park
I was so thankful that the road was still open to the top of Cadillac Mountain as we went to Acadia National Park the last weekend in October, and a lot of areas were already closed off for the winter season. Once you drive up to the top of the Mountain their is a large parking area, and you can either walk along the designated path at the top or scamper around on the rocks only. They are trying to maintain a leave not tracy policy, and not allowing people to walk on the fragile vegetation.
