The Mackinac Island Ski club grooms trails on the east and north side of the Island in Mackinac Island State Park.
The cross country ski trails wind through the pristine woods of Mackinac Island State Park and allow the winter visitor to see all of the natural and historical landmarks of the island.
You can follow the ski trails to the interior of the island and take in the vistas from the highest point on the island at Fort Holmes. Or ski through the woods to Arch Rock and enjoy the view of Lake Huron from the bluffs on the eastern side of the island.
The Grand Hotel … well, it’s simply grand. 🥰 It first opened in 1887, no 2 rooms are decorated alike, and it has the world’s longest front porch. We loved sitting out there overlooking the signature red geraniums and the Straits of Mackinac. Beautiful flowers everywhere you turn and a dining room that seats around 1000! There are just a few rooms with balconies that overlook the front lawn and our friends splurged so we were able to enjoy the views from their balcony. I took the video of the grounds from that wonderful view, and on our last evening I got one of the full moon on the water. 🥰 The morning we left I snapped a pic of the porch rockers with no one in them … I’d never seen them empty! It was very hard to leave!
Until next time, thanks Michigan, for a wonderful trip.
And thank you for following along!
Join us tomorrow at Michilimackinac State Park (or virtually online) at 9AM Eastern for a blessing ceremony with frontline communities working to Stop Line 5, the Enbridge pipeline that threatens the sacred waters of the Great Lakes. This is our final ceremony before we gather at the National Mall on Thursday, July 29th to present this totem pole, and with it all of the stories and calls from the frontlines of sacred places at risk, to Deb Haaland and the Biden administration. Join us and communities on the ground to protect the sacred waters of the great lakes from this defiant Canadian energy giant.
