On Monday morning we packed up The Duchess and headed south from Lake Leelanau. As we drove along the highways for the first couple of hours we were able to see lots of colors in the trees: reds, oranges, yellows and combinations of the three. It was beautiful to see out the large windows in the motorhome as we drove along. We took this picture at a rest area in northern Michigan.
After driving about 225 miles (which is a long day for us), Connie called and found us a spot for the night in the Klines Resort near Three Rivers, Michigan. This is a 55+ community with about 200 lots. Most of the lots have park models or manufactured housing on them, but they have a few sites for RV's with full hook-ups. The resort is located on a small lake and the housing is well maintained. We set up The Duchess for our one night stay, walked around the area and then settled in for the night.
