Wildsam Northern Michigan Stack and Map




“Water is everything here, even ashore. Glaciers that hollowed out the Great Lakes and pocked the land with inland waters also sculpted the land. High dunes look out over turquoise blues, and plots where cherry and apple orchards bloom and divvy the rolling hills–each form expressing a memory of water, just as Hemingway remembered the sky. ”
