We decided to take a drive along the Heritage Road "Tunnel of Trees" It goes from Petoskey through Harbor View and north to Cross View, Michigan - about 27 miles along the western edge of Michigan along Lake Michigan. We started out in drizzle but by the time we were on the return trip, the sun was poking through. It got its name "Tunnel of Trees" because it goes right along the lake shore but the trees cover over in a canopy. Unfortunately, we were about a week early - next week they will be beautiful as the maples were just starting to show their bright oranges and reds. Once we got past Harbor View, we were no longer on the bay shore, but were on the lake shore. You could not see the other side of the lake (Wisconsin) and the waves were huge from the wind. The road is narrow and twisty, but such a beautiful drive.
These scenes are of the harbor at the town of Harbor View.
The homes in Harbor View were just as beautiful as the ones in Petoskey.
When we got back to Petoskey, we had a lovely dinner at Stafford's Bay View Hotel and Restaurant. The food was delicious and the view was super.
This is the view as we ate.
