Leafin’ on a Jet Plane

6 Days, October 14th - 19th

There are lots of great places to catch the changing of the colors each year. Fall foliage is one of nature’s most spectacular shows and we think we’ve found a great place to see the leaves. New England? Too common and too easy to guess. Upper Michigan? Great guess, but we go to Mackinac Island most every year. No mystery there! Here are some clues to help you: Let’s all pray for world peace, then it’s “down the hatch!” It’s kinda chilly in here, maybe it’s a SIGN. Whole Foods is selling their ice cream. Pretty hot in this tavern and everything is brown, maybe gangsters hung out here? Hey, stop horsing around, because we can’t track that sort of behavior. OK, by now, you all know where we are going… or maybe not.
