In the past six years, my dogs and I have seen a lot of this country. I take a lot of photos when I travel and my favorites are usually the shots with my border collie mixes Bowie and Dio (short for D.O.G.). Without the dogs, it’s just a pretty picture, but with them it’s a place I’ve been, a place I know and love. From time to time I’ll post some of my favorite photos on here from my travels with Bowie and D.O.G. Today: the Great Lakes!
Last summer I road tripped up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on assignment for EARTH magazine’s Travels in Geology column. That was my second UP trip. I also swung through the Great Lakes region on my way from Oregon to Pennsylvania years ago. Between the two trips, the dogs and I have been to four of the Great Lakes, with Ontario yet to go.
