I was a woman on a mission; more specifically on Old Mission Peninsula north of Traverse City, Michigan. I joined my spouse for a trip to Traverse City — she for a conference and me to roam Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas. The two peninsulas form Grand Traverse Bay.
At 45 degrees north, the hills and protection from harsh winters (by being so close to water), make this great wine vines territory. The area also has both nature and man-made beauty. I hope you catch the spirit of this beauty from these photos.
