Update! We won the fly-in raffle! Hotel, dinner, rental car. Nice effort by the community to welcome aviation. If you get a chance, stop by and visit. The Big Lake is close to the field!
We found ourselves with a free Saturday and nothing for lunch, so climbed in the RV, and went looking for fun! We are a few weeks from peak leaf color here in Minne, but over in the UP of Michigan, the colors are poppin'!
Ontonagon, MI had it's 2nd Annual Fall Colors Fly-in and Lunch today, so we headed over - it's about 1.5 hrs by RV to a Nice little strip right on Lake Superior.
How it began...... Ready on 9er at Anoka County.....
It got a little wet........
Some people just don't care - Could she HAVE any more pillows?
After the rain, came the colors............. Pics are looking north out over Lake Superior - there is a low layer of gloom that starts right on the shore.
We picked up an angry stowaway on the way home. I was able to neutralize him before any damage was done, it does get your attention,tho!
The ride home was smooth and quiet with a nice tailwind. We met some very nice people and enjoyed a great $5 Sloppy Joe lunch. It's on the calendar for next year!
