    Okay, we've booked a cabin on Lake Superior, in the Munising/ Grand Marais area. Anyone been there? Any good sights to see?

    Michigan is one of ten states I've never been to.

    I think it'd be awesome if you took a couple hours and drove out to Seattle...you'd be practically there anyway. :D

    The Pacific Northwest is definitely on our list. We want save up a few grand and do it right, so we also want to wait until the kids can remember it.

    We have returned! We went to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Lake Superior. It was absolutely GORGEOUS! The water was so clear, you could see boulders on the lake bottom. This place has something for everyone--- Sandy beaches with waves, even better than the ocean IMO bc you don't have the salt taste or stickiness when you swim. Fabulous woods, untouched by man, just starting the fall color. I especially liked the birch groves. No mountains, but they do have some picturesque hills and cliffs. We took the kids on a 3 mile hike through the woods and beaches to Au Sable Lighthouse. They really enjoyed getting in the waves (even though it was so COLD!) and collecting the agate rocks all along the beaches, tumbled smooth by the water. We went on a glassbottom boat tour and saw some sunken shipwrecks. We want to go back some day. Definitely recommend this place. I wanted to attach some pictures, but don't know how to resize. :(

    What is a good pixel height/width for pictures here? I mean, if I resize pic's, what is the maximum pixel size? It's my next Photoshop project! :mm:

    800x600...and 200kb is fine...I post a number of 1024x768 pics - as more people move to larger monitors 1024x pics don't offend as much as they did 3 or 4 years ago.
