LANSING STATE JOURNAL - Remember the first time you crossed the Mackinac Bridge? Did you hug the window in the backseat of your parents' car, neck craning to peer over the edge to the straits below?
What about the first time you huffed and puffed your way to the top of Sleeping Bear Dunes and caught a glimpse of turquoise water from atop the magnificent vista?
Michigan is full of places that take your breath away, places you hope your children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren will someday enjoy, places that make you realize Michigan is one of nature's masterpieces.
