Lansing State Journal picks favorite Michigan spots, heavy on the U.P.

Pick a favorite place in Michigan? That's a tough question for any resident. The staffers at the Lansing State Journal offered up their favorites to kick off a statewide contest, and the results are very flattering to the U.P.
Excerpt: By any route, the hike is rich with lakes, ponds, streams, birdlife and flowers, such as lady slippers, found in so few other places.  The payoff comes when you pop out of the forest and onto the beach. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see another person in any direction. If winds are calm and Lake Superior is flat, you won’t have to die to experience heaven.
