The First Few Days

A left click on the picture will show it enlarged.We will start our trip by leaving Utah and traveling through Wyoming. The only thing we have planned to see is Devil's Tower. The second day will take us across the corner of Montana, into and across North Dakota. If you have any suggestions of places to see, geocaches, good eating places, etc. we would love the tips.
Then we travel across Minnesota and Wisconsin. We'll be in Ashland, WI for the 4th of July. The next day we travel across northern Michigan, across the Macinac Bridge and will be staying somewhere near Indian River, MI.
The next day we travel south through Michigan. From Bay City we drive around Michigan's thumb to view cemeteries were Candleman's ancestors are buried. Then it's into Canada - Stratford, Wellesley and Kitchner. We'll be spending the night in Hamilton. The next day will include Niagra Falls and then up to Toronto to spend a few days.

Please leave us any suggestions you might have. We'd really appreciate your help.

Depending on how early we get off, I'd like to see the Sinks and the Rises near Lander. I haven't checked to see how near, but I remember how impressed I was when I was a boy. I'm also excited to get a look at some of the Wind River Mountains. I think this route also passes "The Parting of the Ways" where the Mormon and Oregon Trails diverged.

Regarding my grave hunting ambitions. I had thought I would be lucky to find any. Instead, thanks to the Internet I have found many. I have addresses and GPS coordinates to ancestor's graves in Unionville and Huron City Michigan, Scugog, Ontario and Sutton, Quebec. I have a great lead on the Pond Mills Cemetery in Ontario, so I'm hopeful there. I'm getting nowhere in Canandaigua though and that is a bit disappointing. Still, how can I complain when so many nice people have been so generous as to transcribe all those cemetery records and post then on the web.

You have to stop in Pinconning, Michigan and pick up some cheese!

You are coming to Stratford? Email me details; if you are there long enough perhaps we can meet for lunch!

It seems a shame to bypass the Black Hills of South Dakota. It's unspeakably lovely and only 20 minutes from Devil's Tower. The casinos in Deadwood have some really good food, too.

Stop and see the Soo Locks when you get to the UP. They're quite a feat of engineering!
