Greetings from Michigan

Another new state to add to our map! It seems almost cheating that we get to add the whole state - including the upper peninsula - even though we're just passing thru the southeast corner. Actually, I don't understand why the upper peninsula is even a part of Michigan. Anyway - when we were getting ready to leave Indiana and continue east, we looked at the map and saw how close we would be to Detroit. Isn't that where Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion house is in some museum? Sure enough. The Henry Ford museum. So we plotted our little detour because Buckminster Fuller is one of our heroes. Today we're leaving the motorhome at Shady Creek RV in Monroe, Michigan and driving into Dearborn to visit the museum. Yesterday we took a little drive to the shore of Lake Erie. Apparently, the ducks can't read! This is a scene that could almost be Florida. But, not this one. I think this is Toledo. I wonder what lakefront property costs around here? There's some pretty fancy houses. OK, we're off to spend Memorial Day in the Henry Ford Museum. I'll tell you all about it later!

I am trying to find out who owns the image of the Welcome to Michigan. I am interested in purchasing the use for a potential ad for the Michigan Film Office.

Hello mdw5478,
We'd be happy to license that photo for the Michigan film office. Just send us an email using the link in the right sidebar at the top.
