Northern beauties

The back gardens of the Legs Inn in Cross Village. Lots of carvings and flowers. The bluff in back overlooks Lake Michigan

Cardboard deer heads in a Art Gallery

Little Traverse Bay
Giant allium
Ernest and me: Not sure of the weird title Snow as there is only one old man. The cat is on Ernest's shoulder. Hemmingway used to summer in these parts. One of his earlier stories was Cat in the Rain
pretty pathways in Harbor Springs

Our second day route from Harbor Springs to Bellaire. First 16 miles were on a paved path hugging Little Traverse Bay but then we had 4 ginormous hills to deal with going to Boyne City, East Jordan (where we had a nice lunch) and Central Lake. Fairly flat after Central Lake

And beauty it is.

What a lovely statue, but does "Old Men and a Cat" refer to story he wrote? I don't see any man but him and no cat anywhere.

I like the moose too, but I think the plural should be mooses.

There is a cat on his shoulder. I think this is some sort of homage to two of his stories: Old Man in the Sea (why old men) and Cat in the Rain. He spent a lot of time around Harbor Springs and Petosky as well as the UP (Two hearted River?)
