After this storm, while perusing the PureUP Facebook group, I came across these beautiful photos from a photographer named Laura Maynard. A Marquette native, she moved to the U.P. from Wisconsin at age 5 and never left.
Over the week of Labor Day, I set out to the Upper Peninsula for the first time on an extended vacation to stay in Iron River and discover some of the waterfalls. I left Labor Day morning and returned Saturday evening and it was a pretty incredible trip.
It was an entire motel dedicated to Bigfoot called the Bigfoot Hideaway. The entire outside of the motel is painted to look like the woods, with multiple references to the mythical creature all over the building and grounds.
